"The Urban Terma Series is a body of work that has emerged from combining my life in Brooklyn NY with Tibetan Buddhist imagery and applies these practices among the bombardment of today's consumerist and materialisticlly driven society. Terma is a buddhist term meaning "hidden treasure" and refers to texts and information hidden by great masters to be discovered and dissiminated by "treasure revealers" at a fitting time in the future. The Tibetan Book of the Dead is the most known example of this type of material.
"I took this photo in rural Tibet during a prayer being lead by a great teacher. The monk in the shot was witnessing the teacher for the first time in many years and was in a state of pure reverence and devotion. This work represents the juxtaposition between the reserved, subdued mentality of eastern philosophy and western ideology, and making sense and connections between them. The monk represents inner strength and calm in the midst of constant chaos." – Kimyon Huggins
