Robin Kyte-Coles set out to document images of the Buddha and Buddhism throughout Asia. This aesthetic and mystic journey took him to remote spots in India, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. Taken using as little flash as possible, the resulting images are spellbinding-a symphony of glowing earth and golden hues. As we browse this series of compelling photographs, we can't help but absorb some of the meditative calm at the heart of Buddhist practice.
