A Day in the Life of Kirti Monastery

These images are from a photo essay that I did on the monks of the Kirti Monastery in Dharamshala for the Associated Press. A large number of Tibetans in Tibet who have immolated themselves since 2009 protesting Chinese rule were monks from the parent Kirti Monastery in Tibet.  The past year has seen an escalation in the number of self-immolation deaths in Tibet.
