After receiving some photographs from my good friend Ken Kawasaki that he had taken in the Indian Museum in Kolkata, I asked if it would be possible to publish them on the Photo Dharma website, and he very kindly gave permission.
I therefore decided to start a new section for Guest Photographers who might like to contribute to the growing collection of material concerning Buddhist Art, Culture and Heritage.
I feel this could be a valuable move because I am only one person (with health problems) and I am very limited in the amount of work I can personally do in this regard.
If anyone else would like to contribute to the collection, please contact me at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org first explaining what materials you have.
Note that photographs should normally be high-definition in size (say a minimum 5m px); and should be made available under a Creative Commons License.
Here are some of Ken’s photos to inspire you:
Bharhut Stupa, Pasenadi Pillar, Outer Face
Mahakapi Jataka Medallion
Sarnath Standing Buddha
Bronze Sitting Buddha
