FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RSUB PUBLISHES DANNY CLINCH'S "WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES"
PHOTO CHRONICLE OF THE TIBETAN FREEDOM CONCERTS 1996-1999 IN CONJUNCTION
WITH THE MILAREPA FUND
FREE TIBET FILM IS RELEASED ON DVD FORMAT
Photographer Danny Clinch, renowned for his work with musicians of all
walks, has compiled a unique and powerful collection of images entitled When
the Iron Bird Flies. The book, to be available in early December, is a
chronicle of Clinch's work and the past four Tibetan Freedom Concerts, where
under a pole and drape tent, he photographed some of the most compelling
portraits of musicians, Tibetan monks and nuns, dignitaries, crew and
Clinch's photos document the excitement and spirit of the concerts as
hundreds of people came together to produce an event focused on bringing
attention to the plight of the Tibetan people and their 50-year, nonviolent
struggle for freedom. Black and white images interspersed with full color
photos are accompanied by quotes from participating artists, concert
speakers, former political prisoners, and facts on the current situation in
Tibet. Performance shots, candid moments backstage and fantastic portraits
of artists like Beastie Boys, Bjork, Radiohead, Michael Stipe and Tibetan
band, Chaksam-pa are just some of the highlights of this special book.
When the Iron Bird Flies is published by the RSUB in
close collaboration with the Milarepa Fund, a nonprofit organization
co-founded by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, dedicated to Tibetan Freedom
and organizers of the Tibetan Freedom Concerts. The book, Clinch's second to
be published by RSUB (his first, Discovery Inn was published in 1998), will
be available in stores nationwide in December. Clinch says of the book, "My
love of music, first and foremost, drew me towards the Tibetan Freedom
Concerts. But like many of the musicians and music fans that came to the
events, I also became educated and inspired by the Tibetan cause. My hope is
that this book will do the same for others."
In addition, Palm Pictures has recently released a DVD version of the film
Free Tibet with brand new packaging. The film documents the first Tibetan
Freedom Concert in 1996, which took place in San Francisco's Golden Gate
Park and features dynamic concert footage as well as numerous interviews
with artists, fans and organizers.
