Photographer's Note

One of the very few female gompas in ladakh is located in Rizong. I had the chance to stop by and meet them.. The first striking thing to me was to see that all these nuns had a shaved head...
they were very friendly like all buddhist monks i have met, and we were offered a cup of chang, the tibetan tea with melt butter.
