Photography by Barry Shaffer: Echoes of Bhutan

100% of the proceeds from sale of the Book will benefit Bhutan's Tarayana Foundation.

Bhutan is no ordinary place to photograph, it is an amply modern country, yet medieval with one foot still rooted in its past. It is a land of ancient monasteries, fluttering prayer flags and unforgettable beauty, where one cannot help but feel a lasting sense of peaceful tranquility. Almost every decision is carefully weighed for the benefit of its people through it's Gross National Happiness institutions, which gives Bhutan its uniqueness.
