Matthieu Ricard

Matthieu Ricard by Ludwig Favre

Matthieu Ricard, born on February 15, 1946, in Aix-les-Bains, France, is a French essayist and photographer. After obtaining a Ph.D. in genetics, he became a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He primarily resides at the Shéchèn Monastery in Nepal. He is a translator from Tibetan to French and English and has been the French interpreter for the Dalai Lama since 1989.
Every striking portrait of Matthieu has been meticulously crafted using a Leica M10 camera. This renowned camera’s precision and quality have allowed
me to create stunning images that capture the essence of the subject.
