Fils d'un homme de foi que passionnait l'œuvre de l'hindouiste védantiste Vivekananda, il a été, depuis son plus jeune âge, nourri de la pensée orientale.

Grand pratiquant de yoga, il y expérimente une démarche qui associe de façon originale méditation et photographie. Selon ses propres paroles, il "photographie des états intérieurs".

Outstanding images created on B&W film Sept. 12 2011
By Allan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first became acquainted with this book in February 2010 through an article about photographer Pierre Crie and the book in the 2/2010 issue of Leica Fotografie International magazine. From the first time I laid eyes on Mr. Crie's images in LFI magazine, I wanted a copy of this book. The fact that it had been published in 2004 - and in France - made finding a copy extremely difficult. I can report that this book is well worth the effort of tracking it down.

Over a two month period in 2000, Mr. Crie documented the Buddhist pilgrimage to the holy mountain of Kailash in the Western Himalayas. His images were made using Leica rangefinder film cameras (M3, M4-P and M6)along with black and white film (likely either Ilford HP 5+ or Kodak Tri-X, judging from appearance of his images).

Crie's images are at once powerful and delicate. They are insightful and revealing; they have been composed and executed in a way that reveals rare photographic talent and vision. They are quite simply moving and beautiful. These images are a shining example of the deft capturing of the decisive moment.

Photographers of all skill levels would do well to study the images in this book and learn from Crie's work. His photographic vision and ability is something all photographers who are passionate about image making aspire to.

The subject matter will be of interest to all who have an interest in Tibetan Buddhism, the culture of Buddhist supplicants and the Himalayan region. The book is written in French, but that is of little concern as the images themselves speak volumes far and away more effectively than words can convey.
