Edition Size: 100 Signed & Numbered Prints
Location: Lhasa, Tibet

Just a short distance from Lhasa is Drepung Monastery, which with a history dating over 600 years is a phenomenal place to visit. During the time I was there the soft hum of the monks could be heard throughout and added a surreal element to the experience. I was granted permission to photograph the monks and set up my large medium-format film camera and began taking multiple long-exposure images which must have looked quite a site. However they were incredibly gracious and this is one photograph I will never forget taking.

Limited Edition Artworks

A Richard Hume Limited Edition Print is the culmination of an exacting process perfected over many years and designed with the single aim of producing the most stunning photographic artworks available.

This process includes incredibly high-resolution image capture utilising some of the world’s best film and digital camera systems, a post production process designed to ensure what is presented in print output is what Richard saw while taking the photograph, and a commitment to the world’s finest museum grade fine-art archival printing and framing standards.


The ultimate outcome is an exceptional artwork that will complete your living space and last through generations.

Every Limited Edition Print is produced by Richard personally to his own exacting standards. Additionally each print is produced individually to order and strictly limited to its edition size – when a print series is sold out no additional print will ever be produced.

Only when I am completely satisfied do I personally sign and number an individual print. 


The print is then registered and a personally signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity issued for it.

I work with clients all over New Zealand and around the world, with a very personalised service designed to create an exceptional artwork for your space.
