Photomontage: Mark Gonnerman, Lushan Temple Entrance, and the Xiang River in Changsha, PRC

A photomontage showing Mark Gonnerman in front of the entrance to Lushan Temple on Yuelu Mountain behind Hunan University and on Orange Island in the Xiang River that runs through Changsha. Lushan Temple (麓山寺) was founded as the Hui Guangming Temple (慧光明寺) in 268 CE. I went there as a visiting professor to lecture and teach courses on the Beats and on Thoreau at the Center for Gary Snyder Studies at Hunan University in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
