from McLeod Ganj
Kobilyatskiy of Denver contacted the Tibetan Photo Project and
asked if she could do anything for the project during her Dec.
2003 trip to India. The goal of the The Tibetan Project is to
put cameras in the hands of Tibetan and let them share their personal
view of their world. We sent Kobilyatskiy six cameras that were
donated by Kodak CEO Daniel Carp. Since Kobilyatskiy is a photographer,
we suggested that she should give technical advice but that we
preferred that she not influence the content of the photos and
that the Tibetans should take photos of what they would like to
show the rest of the world about their lives.
Kobilyatskiy returned the exposed film to the Project in January
2004, her letter explained the process, "I handed the cameras
out to different people whose film is enclosed here. They are
Lodoe, Dawa Cheodor, Nyndak, Jam Yang and Sonam Darjee.
far as I know, the people are students at the Dogga School in
Mcleod Ganj." http://www.dogga.org
