Photographer's Note

This pîcture was taken during the last ceremony of Loshar, the tibetan new year. The ceremony (fire puja) revolves around fire and 4 colors (black, white, blue and yellow). Four of the monks (of the higher of the hierarchy) had most beautiful dressing. This picture is one of them. It was shot in the monastery of Shechen, near the bodnath stupa in Kathmandu. The next, most of the monks would be leaving, returning to their home for several weeks of vacation and/or working in the fields.
Unfortunatel, the ceremony was taking place in the morning, under a very harsh light, not well adapted to pictures.
