We just want to send a note of thanks for a great year for The Tibetan Photo Project.
As you know we finished and premiered our second film, "Visually and Respectfully Yours - The Story of The Tibetan Photo Project" and we are now on the way to our next goal to build The Tibetan Photo Project Filmmaker Education Center.
The premiere raised over $1300 gross towards this goal of $50,000 and we still have the silent auction running at the Mendocino Art Center and the upcoming slide shows this Friday eve and Saturday afternoon at the Art Center ( 7p.m. and 2 p.m. respectively).
A reminder if you are looking for a meaningful holiday gift:
Please feel free to write us if you need more information on the DVD's. We are not yet a non profit. Donations are not tax deductable.
All year we have appreciated hearing from you and we welcome all comments, questions and suggestions.

To date, over 80,000 have checked out these clips on sites like YouTube, VideoGoogle, Aol Uncut Videos and at The Tibetan Photo Project Website.
Please know, we are doing all we can to create a voice for the Tibetan community in exile through their photography and we have appreciated that you are telling your friends about the project.
So again, our thanks.

September and Oct 2006
We-the producers of "Voices in Exile," Sazzy Varga and Joe Mickey are currently editing "Visually & Respectfully Yours - The Story of The Tibetan Photo Project."
We plan to use the film to launch an effort to create The Tibetan Photo Project Filmmaking Education Center that will be established in the Tibetan communities of Dharamsala and McLeod Ganj in Northern India. We hope you will join us for this premier.
We would like to thank Jillian for bringing people together in Madison WI to view these efforts from The Tibetan Photo Project.
We founded The Tibetan Photo Project in 2000 by sending a few disposable cameras to a monk, Jamyang Norbu, living in exile and today the project has evolved into two traveling exhibits, the support of thousands of links on the Web, a combined circulation of print media (newspapers, magazines, weeklies) that has told some part of Tibet's story by reporting on The Tibetan Photo Project is over 26 million.
The project has now evolved into film with the production of Tenzin Wangden Andrugtsang's "Voices in Exile."
At every step, we have only offered technical support but we have never attempted to direct the efforts or content from the Tibetan photographers and filmmakers. We have only asked them to show us what they feel the West needs to know about Tibet, its culture and their lives in exile.
The short film, "Music on Wheels" was created by Tahshi Dhondup who studied film journalism in Boulder Colorado on a 2 1/2 year Fulbright Scholarship. He has returned and works at various reporting and journalism efforts from Dharamsala, India. Currently his video camera is in need of repair. He is editing a film on Kalachakra in India in 2006.
After finishing "Voices in Exile," Wangden is now wrapping up his second trip to The United States. His first trip was a goal of a lifetime, made possible by a grant from the Louisiana Endowment for the Arts in association with an exhibit of The Tibetan Photo Project in early 2005 at Centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Wangden plans to return to India in August and complete work on a documentary on Tibetan prayer wheels. "Voices in Exile" was financed and produced by The Tibetan Photo Project Founders and all that was asked, "Show us what the West needs to know"
The producers of "Voices in Exile," Sazzy Varga and Joe Mickey are currently editing "Visually & Respectfully Yours - The Story of The Tibetan Photo Project."
The new film will premiere Nov. 4, 2006 at the Little River Inn in Mendocino California.
Varga and Mickey will use the film to launch an effort to create The Tibetan Photo Project Filmmaking Education Center that will be established in the Tibetan communities of Dharamsala and McLeod Ganj in Northern India.

This is to announce the premiere showing of a new documentary film on The Tibetan Photo Project this November 4 at Abalone Hall at the Little River Inn. Two Screenings of "Visually and Respectfully - The Story of The Tibetan Photo Project are being scheduled for 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.
Refreshments will be served, DVD's. of films by Tibetans will be available at the screenings and there will be a silent auction for custom photographic prints. We will announce the exciting new goal of the project.
The Tibetan Photo Project got its start on the North Coast in 2000. The goal of the project is to create a voice from the Tibetan community in exile through their photography and film.
To that end The Tibetan Photo Project has evolved into two traveling exhibits created through a grant to Centenary College by the Louisiana Endowment for the Arts, and by Antioch College for tour of the Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Yellow Springs, Ohio and Seattle Campus locations. A portion of these exhibits will also open at the Mendocino Art Center on November 4 and run through November 21.
Some part of Tibet's story has been told through The Tibetan Photo Project in a combined circulation of print media that now totals 26 million. Parade Magazine told 16 million readers that the photographic images by Tibetan monks living in southern India were "REWARDING."
We are very proud to announce that Christina Sachs will also exhibit her Thanka paintings. Christina studied in Nepal for a year and we expect this to be an exciting addition to the events.
We will keep you updated on the November events as the develop and we hope you will tell your friends.

is growing in influence on the world stage. For several years it
has been increasing its military spending at a rate that is over
twice the growth rate of its economy. The next leader in China is
likely to be Hu Jintao. His political rise, is due in large part
to his implementing and maintaining of a brutal hard-line policy
during his term overseeing China's control of Tibet.
are many wonderful works that look at Tibet from the outside. The
Tibetan Photo Project is designed to provide a voice to the Tibetans
by exhibiting their views through their own works of photography.
Their vantage point on China and their experiences in Tibet and
in exile are extremely relevant to anyone trying to understand the
geopolitical, military and economic designs of China in the future.
The intent is to provide a view through the eyes of the Tibetan
community, create a vehicle that provides an elementary introduction
and links you to further study and understanding while giving a
personal voice to the Tibetans that participate in this project.
Because of its unique perspective, the project which began in 2000,
is also catching the eye of the art world with write ups by art
columnist Kenneth Baker of the San Francisco Chronicle (Feb. 5,
2002), the June 2002 edition of Art & Antiques Magazine and the
Santa Barbara art and culture magazine, Head.
