'The Path to Buddha is packed with striking portraits of the Tibetan people and with detailed interiors and landscapes.' (Photo District News / EDU)
'The Path to Buddha is McCurry’s most recent evocation of Central Asia. Great photographers scratch their heads at McCurry’s technical virtuosity and marvel at his distinctive vision.' (Paul Joseph Brown, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
'With a foreword by Tibet scholar Robert Thurman, this collection is rich in countless ways: from the maroon tones in the clothing and monastery walls to the calm devotion evident in the eyes of the faithful. Open this book, and prepare to get religion.' (Outside)
'Three groups of formal portraits are separated by candid shots of pilgrims and monks in this hushed and often engrossing study….Color is essential to capturing this world, and even when it’s riotous, as in some of the peasant dress. Steve McCurry manages to suggest the stillness at the core of Buddhist philosophy. There’s dignity here, and part of the achievement of the pictures is to convey that it’s actually of the people rather projected or imposed.' (Chicago Tribune)
'Photojournalist Steve McCurry turns his considerable skills to the devoted holy people of Tibet….The highlights of this book…are its handsome, colorful portraits. Rich and dignified, they warmly reflect the spirituality of a remarkable people.' (The Miami Herald) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The book includes a short but interesting foreword about Tibet history.
Otro excepcional libro de McCurry, repleto de fotos prodigiosas. El libro incluye un buen número de retratos de personas del Tíbet, en los que se trasluce el sentiminento del propio fotógrafo, además de adivinarse una sutil maestría técnica (que no se luce, sino sencillamente se trasluce)
