Tibetan Photographer Sonam Zoksang to give Gallery Talk at Muhammad Ali Center

The Muhammad Ali Center will feature Tibetan photographer Sonam Zoksang for a Gallery Talk at his exhibit, "Visions of Tibet", October 27th at 4 pm. Zoksang was born in Kyirong, Tibet in 1960 after the brutal Chinese invasion of Tibet. His parents escaped to India when Zoksang was one month old. He grew up in refugee schools, earned a degree in Buddhist Dialectics, and taught himself photography. In 1985, Zoksang moved to the US, where he now runs Vision of Tibet, which specializes in selling the finest handicrafts from Tibet, Nepal, and India. Active in the Tibetan Community as an advocate for human rights and political change, Zoksang is on the Board of Directors of the US Tibet Committee and has been president of the Tibetan Association of New York & New Jersey.

Zoksang’s mission is to tell the story of his homeland through photography. His photos document Tibetans and Tibetan life, both in and out of Tibet. Whenever possible, he travels to Tibet to document the conditions in his Chinese-occupied homeland. He also photographsTibetan refugee communities in India, USA, and many other countries.

The Muhammad Ali Center will host a reception on October 27 during which Sonam Zoksang will discuss his exhibit. Light refreshments will be served from 4:00-5:00pm. Zoksang will present at 5:00pm. Please RSVP to this free event by contacting Erin Herbert at 502.992.5341 or eherbert@alicenter.org
