Photomontage from Tibet

'Billiards on the Tibetan Plateau'
photograph by Claro Cortes IV, montage photocomposition by Glenn Bautista, 2006

The image above isn't on exhibit at the Oarhouse. They're a composite from a set of images taken recently by Claro Cortes, our friend and colleague based in Beijing and shooting for Reuters, and the deft illustrative hand of Glenn Bautista who is also a good friend and longtime established artist and mentor on the Philippine art scene. Claro writes back on his account of riding on the maiden journey of the new Beijing-Lhasa railway which finally connects Tibet to the more developed central and eastern sides of China. And Glenn's great work can be found online too.
