MISSION STATEMENT

The Buddhist Archive of Photography is an initiative of the Lao Buddhist Fellowship of Luang Prabang Province. As part of the Fellowship, it is regulated by the relevant laws of the Lao People's Democratic Republic. The Archive closeley collaborates with the National Library of Laos. In our work, we follow the outline given by the late Pha Khamchan Virachitta Maha Thela, Abbot of Vat Saen Sukharam, who founded the Archive in 2005 together with artist and photographer Hans Georg Berger.
