Haute New Book!

Breathing in The Buddha
By Alan Brigish

If you’ve ever been curious about Buddhist life, Breathing in The Buddha: A Photographic Exploration of Buddhist Life in Indochina is the book for you. Author Alan Brigish explores life in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia by uncovering the beauty of the people who live there. The book tells two stories with images and extensive captions. The first story takes us on a journey through the daily life of people in Indochina, while the second is an exploration of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths and Noble Eightfold Path.

Brigish wants the reader to explore Buddhist philosophy in the context of the daily existence of the people in the most densely populated part of the world where Buddhism is still practiced. He visited a one city in each of the four countries of Indochina uncovering something deeper than what met the eye… mystical people and special places in Burma (Myanmar).

The photography is absolutely stunning… the people come to life on the pages of the book and I must admit that’s what drew me to it.

Brigish is a South African-born documentary photographer. He's captured life in faraway places like Bhutan, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, China and Cuba.
