Pilgrim. Photographs by Richard Gere. With a Foreword by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Introduction by Richard Gere and a Poem by Patti Smith. A Bullfinch Press Book/ Little, Brown and Company, Boston, New York, Toronto, and London, 1997. First edition. Folio. Gilt-stamped cloth with mounted photographic illustration. Designed by Eleanor Morris Caponigro. AUTOGRAPHED BY ACTOR-PHOTOGRAPHER RICHARD GERE IN INK ON THE TITLE-PAGE.

It is well known that actor Richard Gere is a follower of the Dalai Lama; it is less well known that he photographed the unique country of Tibet and its people with considerable artistic flair. He writes in his Introduction: "...images are, like dreams, a product of Mind, fulfilling some deep impulse of Mind to communicate with other levels of itself.....Somehow in the alchemy of light, platinum, silver, and grain, I offer the taste of my feelings of love and gratitude for all they've [Tibetans] given me...." The sixty-five full-page toned images are exquisitely printed by the Meridian Gravure Company, and give a sense of the spiritual moods of the high-altitude, occupied land. Gere uses physical shadows symbolically and frequently employs movement in his images to masterful effect. At the end of the book Gere annotates each image.

A fine copy in clear glassine. (Although the spine looks like it is a different color than the covers in the scan, it is actually the same color.)
