Freedom House: Images of Repression and Freedom

Tibetan novice monks - Bodh Gaya 2010

Tibetan novice monks – Bodh Gaya, India, 2010.

This year I submitted the above photograph to Freedom House’s 2013 Photography and Art contest. Yesterday I found out that it has been chosen as one of the top 30 finalists and it will be featured in the Images of Repression and Freedom Auction. It will be printed and framed with other finalists and winners to be auctioned in support of Freedom House, an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom around the world.

All we need now is a title for the photo. This is where YOU come in. The photo is posted at my facebook page here. As long as you are logged in to facebook you should be able to suggest titles and/or vote on those already there. Again, to suggest a title or vote -
