Olivier Adam Photography – Daughters of Buddha

May 26, 2017 | Photography


Before turning to photography and making a remarkable career out of it, Olivier Adam graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris with a degree in Physics. He is now a renowned humanist photographer and teaches at famous Auguste Renoir School in Paris.

His original work mainly consists of studying Tibetan culture and Buddhism. It is more specifically inspired by the Kalachakra classes which are taught by the Dalai Lama all over the world.

Going even further in his study of Buddhism, Olivier Adam recently devoted his career to the lives of the Tibetan nuns living in exile.

His work started with the study of five nunneries near Dharamsala and has now expended accross the Buddhist female universe all accross the Himalayas.

This particular photo is part of a bigger collection called Daughters of Buddha. 50% of the sales from this specific series of photos is dedicated to supporting the Tibetan Nuns Project. Supported by the Dailai Lama, the TNP was founded more than 20 years ago and aims at providing quality learning and humanitarian aid to Tibetan nuns who have found refuge in India.

We hope you enjoy his inspiring and joyful photographs as much as we did!
