You should always be careful when making promises. This is how fashion photographer York Hovest from Munich felt, who accompanied the Dalai Lama for three days in 2011. York Hovest promised the Dalai Lama he would do him a favor: He would travel to Tibet, the home of the Dalai Lama, and capture the sorrow but also the beauty of the country and the Tibetan people. The promise took Hovest on a wonderful adventure. A photo expedition, the results of which are now available in the form of an illustrated book from NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC as well as fine art prints.
York Hovest traveled to Tibet twice and visited forbidden terrain, forgotten places, portrayed people fighting against Chinese suppression and personally reached his physical and psychological limits in the heights of the Himalayas. The photographer was underway for 100 days, covered 5400 kilometers, and brought home 9000 photos and twelve hours of video footage. One of a kind shots of the northern flank of Mount Everest, photographs of the ancient Buddhist culture, and touching snapshots. An extraordinary NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC illustrated book was created from the photo expedition. The making-of video can be seen on VIMEO.
The most beautiful photos in the book 100 DAYS IN TIBET – The PROMISE are presented by York Hovest at his live reportage. He reports on his experiences in Tibet, from the formative acquaintance with the Dalai Lama, and of the obstacles and drawbacks which repeatedly impeded the photo expedition.
In a 90-minute live reportage with slide presentation, York shows film sequences followed by a round of discussion. There a total of ten dates from 10 – 24 October, 2015, in Germany. After the show, York Hovest autographs his book.
