As a result of inspirations gained from touring the Fo Guang Shan North and South Island¡¯s temple, these images are the fruits of the various photographers who sought out to express the beauty of the two contrasting buildings. Apart from showing the distinct differences between the two temples, from the traditional Tang Dynasty styled building in North Island, to the contemporary artistic architecture in South Island, the images also bring forth the meditational peace and harmony common to both structures. Not only these works convey the nature of the buildings, they also illustrate the complimentary relationship between Buddhism and art through the lenses of professional photography.
