DESCRIPTION

Shaolin: Temple of Zen is an exhibition and publication that documents, for the first time in history, the exceptionally private warrior monks of the fifteen-hundred-year-old Shaolin Temple in the Henan province of China. Justin Guariglia’s body of work brings to light the secretive society of the Chinese Buddhist sect dedicated to preserving a form of kung fu known as a “vehicle of Zen.” Over the course of eight years, Guariglia earned the monks’ trust to create a compelling record of their traditions. www.guariglia-chen.com

 

This exhibition and publication are organized by the Aperture foundation, a not-for-profit organization devoted to photography and the visual arts, and presented at the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design.
