From Pulitzer Center grantee Sean Gallagher’s instagram: “A pilgrim walking around Sershul monastery, in northern Sichuan Province on the Tibetan Plateau. More than 3000 monks live in the monastery, with pilgrims travelling for miles to have the opportunity to walk around the grounds. They believe that by circling the monastery it will bring good fortune to them and their families.” Photo by Sean Gallagher. China, 9th Sept, 2012. To read his reports and see more photos, click here.
