The Spiritual Life of Asia

Noël Lindquist Photography is proud to announce it has been selected by the Thailand International Photographers Society for its upcoming exhibition, The Spiritual Life of Asia.  The exhibition opens this Friday, February 8, at Wat Sri Suphan (Silver Temple) – one of Chiang Mai’s most exquisite Buddhist temples in the heart of the Old City. I am honored to have not one, not two, but five photos in the exhibition depicting spiritual and religious themes across India, Nepal and Thailand.  A sincere thank you to the TIPS team for featuring my work and for all the hard work going into this year’s Chiang Mai Documentary Arts Festival.

หัวข้อ “The Spiritual Life of Asia”

“จิตวิญาณ และ ความเชื่อ แห่งเอเชีย”

The Spiritual Life of Asia is a new exhibition of photographs that celebrates the rich history and diversity of spiritual life across the world’s largest continent. The exhibition is comprised of close to 100 images from more than 15 Asian countries, selected from over 2,000 photos by members of the Thailand International Photographers Society (TIPS).

TIPS is very honored to be displaying “The Spiritual Life of Asia” at Wat Sri Suphan (Silver Temple), one of Chiang Mai’s most exquisite Buddhist temples in the heart of the Old City, and we would like to thank the abbot of Wat Sri Suphan, Prakru Pithaksutthikhun, for making this exhibition possible. The city of Chiang Mai itself, one of the most spiritual destinations in Thailand, makes a perfect stage for an exhibition illustrating religious diversity: while most famous for its numerous historical wats (over 300 in total), the city also boasts around 20 Christian churches and nearly the same number of mosques, as well as Sikh and Hindu temples among other places of worship.

Through the varied perspectives of Asian and non-Asian photographers alike, this exhibition aims to foster greater understanding, respect and tolerance for all religions and spiritual practices. While forms of worship may differ greatly across the Asian continent, the underlying motivations behind them do not but, instead, reveal the most common impulses of “the human spirit”. We hope that you can catch a glimpse of that spirit through the photographs on display.
