Tibet 1938-1939  Photographs Ernst Schäfer expedition

Tibet 1938-1939 Photographs Ernst Schäfer expedition




Tibet, oude fotografie

ENGELHARDT, I, Tibet 1938-1939  Photographs from the Ernst Schäfer Expedition to Tibet, Chicago 2007. Hardcover 21,5 x 25 cm. 280 pag met 150 zwart-wit foto's.

CONTENT:
This volume presents 150 photographs[of 17.000 negatives in the Bundesarchiv] most published here for the first time, of the Schäfer Expedition. In 1938, the German biologist Ernst Schäfer led a scientific expedition to Tibet. His team of scientists was able to record Tibetan life and culture with a level of detail previously unachieved by other Europeans. The photographs in this volume are one part of that record, documenting a vibrant traditional society in the early stages of its encounter with modernity. The Tibetans in the photographs, from high aristocrat to humble peasant, are now dead. Many of the temples and buildings where they worshipped, worked, and lived have been destroyed. This volume of photographs, and the essays that accompany them, portray a Tibet that existed not so long ago, but that has since become a memory.
Main chapters:
  • Tibet in 1938-1939: The Ernst Schäffer Expedition to Tibet.(Engelhardt, I.)
  • The Schäffer collection through an ethnographic Lens.(Müller,C.)
  • British and German photography in Tibet in the 1930's: The diplomatc, the ethnographic , and other modes.(Harris, C.)
  • The Goloks through western eyes: fascination and Horror.(Horlemann, B.)
  • The autobiography of Tsarong as told to Rapten Kazi, interpreter for the Schäffer expedition(Tsarung)

Tibet Caught in Time

Tibet Caught in Time




Tibet, oude fotografie

CLARKE,J.[Foreword by the Dalai Lama], Tibet Caught in Time, Reading 1997. Hardcover, 22 x 27 cm. 150 pag.met 158 zwart-wit foto's. Oude foto's van Tibet. 
"Tibet is famed for its majestic beauty, and also for its ongoing struggle for cultural survival. This collection of photographs from the British Library, taken by two British diplomats in the early twentieth century, shows traditional Tibetan culture before Chinese rule was imposed. In Lhasa, a noble family take a picnic in a park, the women's elaborate head-dresses adorned with pearls. Travelling folk-opera singers pose in costumes and masks. John Claude White was Political Officer in Sikkim for nearly twenty years, and photographed extensively in the border regions of Tibet. The earliest photographs in this volume are his - taken when he joined the British military expedition to Lhasa in 1904. His pictures of mountains and glaciers give a geographical context for his more intimate shots of towns and people. White was succeeded as Political Officer in 1908 by Sir Charles Bell. Bell became a good friend of the thirteenth Dalai Lama when he fled to India to escape the Chinese pressure in Lhasa and this friendship later afforded him privileged access to Tibetan society during two extended visits to the capital at the invitation of the Dalai Lama in 1921 and 1933. His photographs reveal an ancient and complex civilization, dominated by the power of monastic religion. Bell, who spoke Tibetan fluently, went on to publish a wide range of scholarly titles on Tibetan culture and campaigned for its independence. His photographs and diaries are held in British Library Oriental and India Office Collections."

Vanished kingdoms

Vanished kingdoms




China, Tibet, Mongolië, oude fotografie

CABOT,M.H., Vanished kingdoms. A woman explorer in Tibet, China & Mongolia 1921-1925. Hardback, oblong.190 pag. met veel zwart-wit foto's en een paar in kleur.

Vanished Kingdoms is the story of Janet Elliott Wulsin who explored together with her husband remote corners of Western China, Inner Mongolia, and northwestern Tibet. Wulsin's story went largely untold until, after her death in 1963, her daughter, Mabel Cabot, found her mother's private letters and diaries. Cabot spent the next four years conducting research in the Harvard University Library and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology to unravel her mother's fascinating story. 
They documented tribes people and sublime desert landscapes, and, most remarkably, were allowed to photograph the interior of several of the great Tibetan Buddhist lamaseries, including Choni, Kumbum and Labrang. Several dozen rare, hand-painted lantern slides survived and are reproduced here in color.
The photographs from the Wulsin Expedition, are now in the collection of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University

(see also: AlLONSO, M.E.ed. China's inner frontier Photographs of the Wulsin Expedition to Northwest China in 1923. Cambridge, 1979).
