Publication photo project 'Buddhist boys'
At the South-Western tip of Vietnam in the small village Rach Gia, inside the monastery live about 30 underaged monks, one 28th year old buddhist leader and a handful of women. They follow the principles of Theravada Buddhism, except for the women. 'Buddhist brotherhood' explores the friendship among these young students.
The publication is chronologically organised and shows the activities of the monks on a daily basis over a period of several months. Daily tasks like cleaning, as well as leisure time are added with each picture as foot notes to reflect the rhythm of their lives as well as their repetitive lifestyle. The photo series emphasis the boys in constant relationship to each other.
