Let's pick an especially isolated, remote country such as Bhutan and ask ourselves what we know about it. Zilch, comes the response. Through Regina DeLuise's stunning photography we can at least get acquainted. Vast Bhutan: Images from the Phenomenal World
showcases photos DeLuise took on a visit to the landlocked Asian nation in 2010. Bhutan is completely immersed in Buddhist history and practice; it's a spectacularly beautiful, mountainous realm; reputedly it's one of the happiest countries on earth. DeLuise's art delivers us there.
