The village of Sipapokhari in Sindhupalchok was devastated by the earthquake two years ago. Many journalists visited it to take pictures, but a team of professional photographers trained young boys and girls of the village to use DSLR cameras and let them tell their own stories.

For four days last month, the participatory photography workshop helped the youth to explore their everyday lives and give them expression through images of the world around them.

Photographers from Nepal, the Netherlands and the United States, led by Kevin Bubriski, gave the youngsters aged 10-15 from the Dalit, Tamang and Newar communities the chance to make photographic stories of themselves, their families and communities.

The collection of the students’ photographs premiered on 27 March at Lasanaa/Nexus in Bhakhundol, as part of the Kathmandu Trienale. The 10 students will be hosted there again 6-8 April to meet, collaborate with national and international artists, and exhibit their photographs.

The work will also be disseminated to a large national and international audience through social media platforms. There are also plans to distribute a print publication to every school in Nepal, especially in the remote regions where wi-fi and roads have not yet reached. Ideally this project will encourage all young people in Nepal to openly explore their identity and diversity.
