The beauty and diversity of Nepal and Nepalis – and their resilience, most recently in the face of that devastating earthquake less than two years ago – is celebrated in a photo exhibition organised by the charity PHASE Worldwide. PHASE work to improve health, education and livelihoods for people living in five of Nepal’s remotest districts, including Gorkha, which was the epicentre of the 2015 earthquake. Working with three photographers, they have curated a collection of photos from some of the remotest regions of Nepal.
The exhibition also features the exciting contemporary Nepali artist Manish Harijan who tackles issues of politics, identity, poverty and caste discrimination. He’s had two solo exhibitions in Kathmandu, and has also shown his work in India. Find out more about his work here and here. Also featured is the work of ML Art, a self-taught artist from Kathmandu who does pen and ink drawings, clay sculptures and installations.
All proceeds from the exhibition will go to PHASE’s work.
