All the following images were shot at the beautiful Nimalung Lhakhang in Bumthang,
Central Bhutan. By mistake, I ended up at the Tsechu on the day of the Cham-ju (19th June, 2010) which was as well since I got to photograph the dancers without their masks.
Having had this first time experience (photographing the Cham without the masks), I realize that it does not work for me. Instead of focusing on the movement of the dancers and the dance itself, I end up trying to capture the various facial expressions of the dancers. In the process I miss out on some great shots.
