This photograph is part of a series titled ‘Bhutan Echoes’ – a collection of evocative black and white photographs taken in Bhutan over a decade ago by photographer, Serena Chopra, that forms a personal photographic study of the landlocked Himalayan country.

Chopra captures the unique landscape of this country with its surprising blend of the secular and the religious, myth and reality, the traditional with the modern, and the immense contrast between its smaller townships and faraway ancient villages. The journey into Bhutan was also one of self-discovery for her, as the beautiful country drew her deeper into her first love, photography.

  • ABOUT Serena Chopra

    Serena Chopra is a Delhi-based photographer, whose first body of work on Bhutan led in 2007 to solo shows held at New Delhi, New York and Thimphu. A wider selection of her Bhutan work was also later published alongside extracts from her personal journals — as The Ancients by Academic Foundation. Chopra has since explored the lives and times of resident Tibetan exiles at Majnu ka Tilla in Delhi; and Naga sadhus at the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar and during Shivratri in Varanasi. She has also participated in a photo exhibition at the Bonjour India Festival (2013) and produced a picture notebook, Along the Ganga.

    Serena Chopra graduated in English Literature and Mass Communication and was an entrepreneur for 20 years, until, in 2004, she decided to pursue her passion for photography and journalism.
