One People, One Heartbeat

Creating Connections through Art

Livelihoods and Markets (2017)

I was a Coady student in 2017. I love travelling and learning other cultures and using my camera, to take photographs to document my travel and the people that I found. Last year, I made a one month journey in the heart of West China. I met with Tibetan people and fell in love with their culture. One day, in Labrang Monastery I met an old lady that gave me food and spoke in Tibetan that I totally don’t understand. She gave me the bread and she smiled at me. Another day, I met another old lady that gave me the fruits from her yard. I am thinking that generosity and kindness are a universal language. No matter our culture, language, nationality, skin, religion, etc. We even don’t need to speak to share that.
