Don Farber captures the life and work of His Holiness the Dalai Lama across a 30-year span in this inspirational exhibition. Farber’s photographs highlight the reverence shown to His Holiness Dalai Lama wherever he goes and captures the quieter moments that reveal the private individual and his compelling humanity. By following his footsteps through this photographic journey, we receive a rare view into the life of this beloved world religious leader. The photographs in the exhibition are included in Farber’s latest book, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, published by teNeues.

“It’s really hard to get a private audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama nowadays. Not that the great teacher, leader, and wonderful human being is any less open and accessible than he has always been. It’s just that he’s in such demand, and the lines are terribly long. Don Farber has given us a great gift, using his consummate artistry to open a window upon the intimate presence of His Holiness at home, out in the world helping people, contemplating the ocean of life with his unaverted gaze of love and compassion. It is thus a distinct privilege and pleasure to spend time with Don’s book, feeling so close to “The Presence” of the Dalai Lama in a leisurely and peaceful fashion. With deepest thanks to Don Farber, I enthusiastically recommend the uplifting experience of this book to one and all.”
