1984 - Nicholas Vreeland

A Buddhist monk, Nicholas Vreeland or “Nicky” is also a photographer. He photographed the Dalaï Lama in the United States in 1979. During a trip to Dharamsala with a big wooden view camera to take portraits of holy men, he decided that he wanted to become a monk and was ordained in the nineties. His pictures at Lafite express the mellowness of a peaceful soul.
