Diaries of Nepal 14 // Finding Bagmara

Bagmara (or “Kill Tiger” in Nepali) is the kind of hidden gem you’d only dream about visiting, and an adventure to behold.  At one point in time a paradise where tigers were richly found and hunted by royalty, today few tigers remain in the area. One day we decided to trek out for 2 hours outside Pokhara city to visit some friends. Situated near the Seti River gorge, a small community of houses built next to the river can be found. The people who live here collect rocks for construction for a living. When we finally got to the edge of the cliff there was no other way to go except down. A pretty astonishing cliff hike, but totally worth it and wouldn’t have exchanged it for a thing.

Jeremiah // Kathmandu, Nepal

Jeremiah is a dynamic freelance graphic designer hailing from Ohio now living in Kathmandu. I love that he gets the opportunity to work with an organization that helps children who have been victims of sex trafficking in this region. I was so honored our paths crossed and even more delighted to be asked to capture his portraits. Thank you Jeremiah for having me along!

Diaries of Nepal 13 // Dancing with the Lights

In Nepal there’s about a hundred festivals throughout the year, but there’s one festival called “Tihar”. It’s basically a festival of lights and children go from house to house to dance in exchange for money. (Kind of like the Nepali equivalent of Halloween and Christmas). Back in November I had the amazing opportunity of capturing some of my neighborhood friends do their thing. So much thought and pride is put into what they put out. They plan their performances and traditional dress for weeks in advance. Whatever money they earn as a group is split equally among them to use as extra pocket money.
