Actor Richard Gere is well known for his outspoken defense of the Tibetan people, his Buddhist beliefs, and his friendship with the Dalai Lama. What is less well known is that Gere has long been a serious and accomplished photographer.
Pilgrim will change that. The sixty-five striking photographs collected in this book document Gere's extensive travels in India, Nepal, Zanskar, and Tibet -- the work of a mature artist exploring subject matter that is close to his heart. The images -- which capture the rarely glimpsed rites and shrines of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the remote peoples and landscapes of central Asia -- are hushed and meditative, reflecting Gere's spiritual journey as much as his terrestrial wanderings.
The book includes a foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, an introduction by Gere, and a poem by Patti Smith that accompanies the portfolio. Reproduced on luxurious uncoated stock in an oversized format, the photographs in Pilgrim bring to life an ancient and spirituality vital world -- and share Gere's very personal vision. [via]
