Marc Domsky is an amateur photographer and anesthesiologist in Jackson, Wyoming. His love of mountain culture led him to Bhutan where he was immediately struck by the incredible array of phallic forms, paintings and totems throughout the country. We talked with him about his book, “Phallus through Bhutan”, which documents these artistic traditions and their meanings. We delved into the symbolism, why the values of Western culture limit our ability to appreciate phallic representations, and more.
