Everyday Exile Photojournalism began in McleodGanj (upper Dharamsala), Himachal Pradesh state, India. Situated on a ridge in the Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayas, it is the capital of the Tibetan government in exile and home to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama since his 1959 flight from the Chinese armed occupation of Tibet. It is also home of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa(ng) Karmapa and the Nechung State Oracle.

Other Tibetan exile communities visited to date include:
*Bir (or Biri),(Chauntra), Himachal Pradesh, India
*Tso Pema (Rewalsar)
