Events Detail

Photo Kathmandu 2016

Photo Kathmandu, Nepal’s only international photography festival, serves as an alternative platform for conversations between visual storytellers and local audiences. 

This year, the festival will feature works that speak to ideas of resilience and revival. 2016 marks 20 years since the start of the Maoist rebellion in Nepal. Last year, Nepal was hit by several horrific earthquakes which killed over 8000 people and left over 800,000 families homeless. Photo Kathmandu 2016 will examine how the human spirit overcomes conflict, disasters or personal challenges, and will present stories of survival and triumph from around Asia. We hope it will be one of many ways through which the Nepali public will find the resolve to overcome adversities, and the inspiration to nurture new dreams.

Photo Kathmandu is organized by photo.circle.
