The Sakyadhita International Association of Buddhist Women, “an alliance of women (and men) committed to transforming the lives of women in Buddhist societies,” is soliciting submissions for a book of photographs that will “show the history and cultural diversity of Buddhist women around the world.” They continue:
“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
A book with written information is less appealing than a photo book with a simple, short piece of essential information. Let the photos tell the stories.
Since the arrival of online media, the world has come to realize the power of photos and few words. Considering this new trend in human information consumption, a photo book would be an effective way to touch people. Meanwhile, with easier Internet access in many parts of the world, electronic files are the fastest and easiest way to share information. Hence, the idea has arisen to produce a photo e-book to tell the stories of Buddhist women from all traditions around the world. Though the book will focus on female monastics, stories of significant events involving laywomen would be a beautiful addition.
