Aftershock

Every time I think back to the time I spent in Nepal I think about the people I’ve met, the sleepless nights underneath tarps and the shaking ground beneath us. During my stay shortly after the demolishing earthquake in 2015, I primarily helped a local grassroots organization founded by tourists distributing emergency supplies to villages far off the grid, programmed a website and worked on a document about house rebuilding. Secondarily I always had my camera with me, trying to capture the life after such an extreme event. While some of these projects came to a stop or changed, the photos stayed. The timeless reality of a photo fascinates me. Through the light, the story is made visible.
