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

Two Tibetan monks at the banks of Lake Yilung Lhatso in eastern Tibet. The icy lake of Yilung Lhatso, at 4,300 metres (14,000 feet) above see level, not far from Derge, was given its name, which means "Divine Lake of the Mind?s Delight", in memory of a Tibetan princess who passed by this lake on her way to marry one of the ministers of the legendary King Gesar. Her mind was ravished by the place to such an extent that she announced that she would settle there and that the minister could come to marry her there if he wished so. The engraving on the rock reads "Om Mani Padme Hum", which is the mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig in Tibetan). July 2005
