Eyes of Wisdom Exhibition
If you are in Bangkok on Friday 7 July 2006, please drop in at the The Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand around 7.00 p.m. I will make a speech to open a special exhibition of photographs by Ralf Tooten.
Ulrike Crespo Foundation and Goethe-Institute Bangkok which are the sponsor of the exhibition expect a full house.
Ralf Tooten’s exhibition is a contribution to the understanding between religion and culture. He is based in Bangkok, and traveled around the world for five Years to make portraits of the dignitaries of the world’s most significant religions. His work resulted in an exhibition and a Pictures Book, which is called Eyes of Wisdom- a plea for inter-religious dialogue.
More than 50 large format black and white Portraits offer an opportunity to observe and encounter great human beings who have become symbols of their faith.
“Photos can be many things Art, remembrance, documentation Here they become symbols Of a deeper truth”
“The heart of all religions is one.”
His Holiness the XIV. Dalai Lama
