Tinley Chojor was a seventh-generation lineage holder in the eri artistic style of Central Tibet, a style that dates from the time of the Fifth Dalai when Tinley's ansestors were recruited from their village to go to Lhasa to assist with on the building of the Potala. The scope of Tinley’s lifetime of work is formidable, spanning more than six decades across four countries and encompassing all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as cultural institutions within the Tibetan community-in-exile and the western community of Buddhists now practicing within this tradition.

The project is photo-documenting this amazing body of work for a forthcoming book (KTD PUBLICATIONS 2013). The photos are presented against Tinley's dramatic life's story as described in oral history interviews which were conducted over the last four years of his life. Research, photo documentation, and oral history interviews made possible with the generous support of the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation, Will and Laura Roth (through the Karma Kagyu Institute), Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche Loving Kindness & Compassion, Malcolm Pullinger, Dr. Laura Roth, Nora Post and many others. We thank everyone from the depths of our hearts.
