What's in a Name?
Tendrel is a Tibetan term that cannot easily be translated with a single word. It is made up of 'ten', meaning support, plus 'drel', meaning dependence and conditionality. Tendrel implies that all phenomena are linked with each other and dependent on each other; that nothing exists on its own, uninfluenced by anything else.
I hope that my images capture something of our relationship with the subject, and with each other.
