DHARAMSHALA, Aug. 29: A photo exhibition on the on the Tibetan diaspora is currently being hosted at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, the Office of Tibet (OoT) there announced Wednesday.

The exhibition titled “Tibetans in Diaspora: A Success Story” features the work of Italian photographer Albertino d’Urso, documenting the lives of exile Tibetans living in various countries around the world. In an extensive coverage spanning ten years, d’Urso has closely followed Tibetans in their new lives in exile communities in India, Nepal, Taiwan, New York, UK, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, Italy and Canada.

The winner of 'Canon Young Photographers Award', 'Lens Culture International Exposure Award', 'Julia Margaret Cameron Award', d’Urso recounted her fascination of the Tibetan people who despite losing their country continue to practice their culture and religion in exile in a unique fashion.

“My goal is to unite visually, the Tibetans in exile who are now displaced all around the world, living in limbo, in a unique de facto state with a Prime Minister and a government that no country in the world recognizes; an official language and their own medicine, symbols, calendar, and, above all, their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama,” she earlier said.

Her book ‘Out of Tibet’ documenting photos of Tibetan exiles was released earlier this year and travelling exhibitions of her work has been showcased in galleries in Milan, London, New York, Mumbai among other cities.

The five-day exhibition in the EU parliament headquarters in Belgium will officially be inaugurated today by Mr Thomas Mann, MEP, President of the Tibet Interest Group who has hosted the exhibition there, along with the photographer.

The exhibition which highlights the success of the Tibetan refugee community will feature few of its most successful members such as Ms Bhutila Karpoche, Member of Canadian Provincial Parliament, Tibetan traditional doctor, Amchi Yeshi Dhonden, recipient of Padma Shri award (top Indian civilian award), Dr Tenzin Dorjee, Chair, United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, Ms Tenzin Dolkar, Minnesota Rail Director and Professor Ngawang Samten, recipient of Padma Shri award (top Indian civilian award), among others.
