The Icon Show: Shyamspace Interviews, 1994-95

During my first trip to India in 1994, I interviewed and photographed 30 Shyam meditators who were attending the International Meditation Institute in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, India.

I exhibited these interviews at the Main Access Gallery as part of a group show call, "Icons: Manifestations of our Time", curated by Yvonne Zarnowski, in February 1995.
