Photographer's Note

Taken in Sera monastery in Lhasa. This has to be one of the most extraordinary things I have ever seen. At a certain time of the day all the monks gather in a courtyard and set about to argue variuos points, using fantastic body language and actions. This photo sums up the experience for me with such a wide range of poses, some blurred from movement; a large throng. Yet amongst it all, two figures close together argue a minute point: one with his finger wagging to emphasise a point, the other with two fingers together. What can't be included in the photo: the intense noise of a hundred separate debates and slapping of hands.
