Synopsis : Christian Peltenburg-Brechneff's unique access over a long period of time has created drawings that capture what the camera cannot: the spirit of the lost kingdoms of Asia. He explores the architectural and spiritual wonders of the Himalayan kingdoms with brush and ink: from Nepal to Bhutan to India. Working continuously for 25 years, each drawing is dated and sited. Peltenburg-Brechneff decodes and maps exotic architecture and landscapes to grasp their creative dynamic, while uniquely preserving vanishing environments for posterity.
