In August, 2011, thanks to the Association Freunde für ein Freund (Friends for a Friend) – an initiative in support of Tibetan culture – Hovest had the opportunity to portray the Dalai Lama in Wiesbaden during a visit to Germany. The job was to become a turning point in his life. “I asked myself what I could do for the Dalai Lama and his country from my perspective.” So Hovest wrote a letter to His Holiness: “I would like to travel to your homeland and capture its laughter and its tears; and then return with a message to the world.”

Equipped with an S2 and under exhausting conditions where he had to battle with many obstacles, Hovest managed to produce a powerful reportage with breathtaking images.

You can read in the reportage in LFI 1/2015.

Born in Wesel in 1978. After studying electronics installation, Hovest first worked as a model. He began his career behind the camera in the field of beauty and fashion as a self-taught photographer after working as an assistant to photographers in Munich and Milano. His first book, Hundert Tage Tibet Das Verspechen (One hundred days in Tibet – the promise), has become a best seller. Autographed German copies of the book are available at the LFI online shop.
