Born in the UK, Julian Bound is a documentary photographer, film maker and author. Featured on the BBC news, National Geographic and in the international press, his work focuses on the social documentary of world culture, religion and traditions, spending time studying meditation with the Buddhist monks of northern Thailand and with spiritual teachers of India’s Himalaya region.

His previous work has included documenting the soldiers of the Burmese Karen National Liberation Army, the Arab spring of 2011, Cairo, Egypt, and the Thailand political uprisings of 2009 and 2014 in Bangkok.

With portraiture of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Julian has extensively photographed the Tibetan refugee camps of Nepal and India. His other projects include the road working gypsies of India, the Dharavi slums of Mumbai, the rail track slums of Jakarta and the sulphur miners at work in the active volcanoes of eastern Java, Indonesia.

Present for the Nepal earthquakes of 2015, he documented the disaster whilst working as an emergency deployment photographer for various NGO and international embassies in conjunction with the United Nations.

Julian also publishes photography books featuring documentary work encountered in Asia, and also on portraiture of ethnic groups and minorities.
These include ‘The Middle Way’ a photographic account of a seven month journey through seven Buddhist countries, documenting the Buddhism practiced in Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar, and ‘Tibet’ which documents a road journey from the southern Nepali border to Lhasa.
Julian also writes novels based on Buddhist and Hindu perspectives. These included the bestselling novel ‘The Geisha and the Monk’ – set in 19th century Japan and Tibet.
