Vanishing Tibet Details

Vanishing Tibet is Catherine’s book project, co-authored with Danny Conant and with a foreword by Robert A.F. Thurman and designed by Thomas F. Yarnall. “For this project, Catherine has reached beyond the bounds of traditional photography creating multi-dimensional images with metal, silk, satin, wood and handmade Tibetan paper to assist the viewer in feeling and experiencing the depth and richness of a vanishing culture.”

Over the past ten years photographers Danny Conant and Catherine Steinmann made several journeys to Tibet intending to experience firsthand the magical quality that draws pilgrims the world over to this land of deep spirituality and immeasurable beauty. Instead, to their infinite dismay, they discovered a Tibet whose soul is gradually disappearing. The loss is pervasive cultural, environmental, economic, religious and seemingly inexorable.
