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.”

MATTHIEU RICARD

About the artwork

Buddhist monk and neurobiologist, Matthieu Ricard is also a photographer and author. He has shared the grandiose beauty of the Himalayan region with us for many years. Born in 1946, he travelled to India for the first time in 1967 and met on this occasion remarkable masters of the Buddhist Tibetan tradition. After living in Tibet and Bhutan, he definitively moved to Nepal to the Shechen Monastery and became the Dalai Lama’s French interpreter in 1989, helping him to maintain a continuous dialogue between East and West. A life spent in this intimate space has allowed him to capture, through his lens, the masters, landscapes, and peoples of this isolated region of the world, and to paint a magnificent portrait of it. Matthieu Ricard is the author of many photographic books, including The Spirit of Tibet, Himalayan Buddhist, Tibet: Gazes of Compassion, Motionless Journey, and Monk Dancers of Tibet and Bhutan: Land of Serenity. His photographs have been exhibited in New York, Paris, Perpignan, Winterthur, Stockholm, and Hong Kong.
