Peter van Ham
|Peter van Ham's public life has been marked by numerous publications, lectures and exhibitions on his expeditions to regions, which till his research ventures had been some of the last remaining white spots on the world´s maps.
Thus in the 90´s of the twentieth century the Indo-Tibetan border regions - both in the Western Himalayas and in the Northeastern hill regions - became second home to Peter van Ham. There he was able to discover and document in depth art, cultures and traditions, which till date had been practically unknown to the Western world.
Eight internationally published books in various editions containing app. 2000 photographs, exhibitions and multivisional slide presentations in the entire German speaking Europe are the fruits borne from his efforts.
His undertakings have been supported by none less than His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, the Archaeological Survey of India as well as the UNESCO and he has been state guest to various Asian countries.
