On my recent trip to Nepal I felt a surge of inspiration from a fresh new energy to photograph this most captivating country.
I felt not a hurried sense to get every image, or a nagging duty to document everything. Instead, I had a sense that patience would allow the strongest images to happen. In the cities the busyness and chaos would melt away if I just sat and observed for a moment. In the countryside I would click away at the changing light, listening to the sounds of the insects and just…. well… watching.
Photographing was a huge influence in uncovering the daily life, finding individuals invested in their local communities, and capturing the incredible landscape.
This trip to Nepal was a long-awaited, light-at-the-end of a tunnel for me. Emerging from months of non-stop work, projects and life’s responsibilities, Nepal allowed me to take a breath and recalibrate.
Out of over 1,000 images here are some of my favorites.
