We did something a little different this week. On Wednesday night, we went to check out the opening of Landscapes from Within, a photography exhibit by Damien Milan.
The photos were shot on Olkhon Island in eastern Siberia, a place where the small local community of about 1,500 people still practice shamanism and regards the island to be a significant spiritual place. The landscapes were remote, expansive, and I found myself taking deep relaxing breaths. Perhaps the spirit of the place was carried through the photographs.
Damien took these shots while on a 50 day journey across the Trans-Siberian railway! What an adventure! To say that my wanderlust went off the Richter is putting it mildly.
Aren’t they beautiful? For more, visit Damien Milan’s website.
