Divine Encounters – Limited Edition

“In Divine Encounters, acclaimed photographer Hans Kemp turns his lens toward Asia’s shamans, priests, temples, shrines, and religious ceremonies. Asia teems with life, color, and emotion and in his large, brilliantly hued images Kemp manages to capture the continent’s spiritual vitality, making the invisible as visible as possible for us.
A magnificent photographic tribute to Asia’s spirituality.”
Kevin B. Turner, author of Sky Shamans of Mongolia: Meetings with Remarkable Healers

“The breadth and scope of Hans Kemp’s superb photography captures the expansive yet intimate nature of Asia’s ancient and thriving spiritual traditions.”
Art Wolfe – Renowned photographer of over 100 books and TV host of Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge




From the moment you see and feel the limited edition of Divine Encounters you know that you’re beholding something very special! Though the size, page count and content of the limited edition is exactly the same as the trade edition, the presentation is altogether unique.

Limited to only 350 pieces produced, this signed and numbered collector’s edition is indeed a finely crafted piece of art.

Packaged in its own deluxe and hinged box, the limited edition includes a signed and numbered certificate and an archival quality giclee print of the first image in the book.

But perhaps the most impressive aspect of the limited edition is the striking image of a sacred Yant Sua or Tiger Yant embossed in gold foil on both the cover of the book as well as on the lid of the deluxe box.

Specially drawn by Sak Yant master Ajarn Neng in Bangkok, the Yant Sua symbolizes prosperity and compassion. A detailed explanation of the various elements of the Yant Sua as well as information on tattoo master Ajarn Neng will accompany the limited edition.
