Learning and peace, the Himalaya Buddhist Academy of Serlo (Nepal 2017-10)
The students come from Nepal, India, and occasionally from further away. Many Nepali families send their children to be trained at the monastery. At about age 18, they can opt to remain or leave and return to the regular commercial world. They live in dormitories on site.
The black and white photographs are from Kodak Tmax 400 film taken with a Leica IIIC rangefinder camera and a 50mm f/2 Summitar lens.
