This series of photographs, by a 20th Century master, are especially remarkable, because they combine the formalism and relevance of great art with the intimacy.

This volume is more than the catalog for an exhibit accompanying the 2013 visit of the Dalai Lama to Louisville, Kentucky, and commemorating his affection for Thomas Merton. It is a document of something we have all missed about the final two years of Merton's life. The starkness and brevity of the passages selected resound in a direct way upon the soul.

This series of photographs, by a 20th Century master, of a 20th Century seeker, are especially remarkable, because they combine the formalism and relevance of great art with the intimacy, the playfulness, the casual snapshot sense of lost time, that arises between dear friends...

Meatyard offers countless ways to see the world... by focusing on the world at hand in a manner that is quiet, meditative and constant.

We cannot look at these photographs without seeing something else: the countdown from January 1967 to Merton's final departure from Kentucky in September 1968, and his death in Bangkok three months later.
