John Vincent Bellezza Collection
The John Vincent Bellezza Collection consists primarily of photographs from 1999 to 2008 of archaeological sites and still functioning monasteries throughout northern and western Tibet. These sites are also documented extensively within THL's Place Dictionary with lengthy essays and detailed maps of the region. They are organized in terms of the expeditions in which the sites were documented and the photographs taken.
