Ever since The Peoples Republic of China signed the United Nations Convention against Torture in 1986 they have denied all existence of torture in their legal system. But the testimonies of the political refuges from Tibet shows the opposite.

During the 33 years that the Buddhist monk Palden Gyatso spent in Chinese prison starvation, torture and humiliation was part of his everyday life. When he escaped to India he managed to smuggle with him some of the instrument used for torture. These instrument bear the testimony of what is happening inside Tibet. The portraits are taken of three buddhist monks and a buddhist nun who have been tortured by the Chinese in Tibet.


The book Testimony have been created together with Amnesty International.
