The artist

“Matthieu's camera and his spiritual life are one, and from this spring these images, fleeting and eternal. Henri-Cartier Bresson. Matthieu Ricard was born in France in 1946. Since 1967, he lived in Himalayas to study Tibetan Buddhism and is the French interpreter of the Dalai Lama since 1989. He lives in Nepal at Shechen Monastery and devotes much of his time to the preservation of Tibetan cultural heritage. Matthieu Ricard has photographed the spiritual masters, landscapes, and people of the Himalayans over the last forty-five years and published several albums of photography including, in English, Journey to Enlightenment (Aperture, 1996), Buddhist Himalayas (Harry Abrams, 2002), Dancers Monks of Tibet (Shambhala, 2003), Tibet, an Inner Journey (Thames and Hudson, 2006), Motionless Journey (Thames and Hudson, 2007) and Bhutan, a Land of Peace (Thames and Hudson, 2008). His work have been exhibited in New York, Paris, Perpignan, Winthertur, Stockholm and Hong Kong and reviewed in the New York Times and other magazines throughout the world.  ... See more See less

“I use photography as a source of hope, which restores confidence in human nature and revives our awe at the natural world around us.”

About the artwork

From the Jango Thang plain, at an altitude of more than 4,000 metres (13,000 feet), a buddhist monk meditates in front of the impressive Jomolhari glacier (7326 metres, 24,037 feet), the highest mountain in Bhutan. It was climbed only once, by Spencer Chapman (UK) and Sherpa Pasang (Nepal) on May 21, 1937, and climbing was prohibited thereafter. May 2007
