About the Book
This book is my very personal view on Nepal, pointing up an ethnographic thick description of the country’s unique cultural characteristics and heritages and it’s people.
As an cultural anthropologist I try with this project to speak through black & white photographs
All photographs of this book have been transformed from either digital or film roll color images into black & white. The achromatic photographs enhance this image statement, some are in addition to it on purpose slightly out of focus or drawn wrongly to eye on certain details.
This book is dedicated to the people of Nepal, where lived for almost 4 years between 2004 and 2007.
