Laxmi Prasad Ngakhusi, one of the trainers, has captured a village as seen from Changunarayan — a green farm, traditional Newar houses and trees form part of the photograph. Roshan Suwal has captured an old Newar woman lying beside her charkha (spinning wheel). Elderly men are talking to one another on the occasion of jatra in a photo of Devendra Singhkhwal. You will also get to see a young girl in traditional hakupatasi carrying a puja thali in another photo.
Interestingly the courtyard of Bhaktapur Durbar square seems to be of the most interest to many photographers and they have captured it in their own ways. People are walking in the Square during the daytime in two different photos of Barsha Nakarmi and Suman Prajapati. It is the scene of dusk with the sky turning almost orange and silhouettes of temples in Umesh Dandekhya’s image. But Bikesh Prajapati’s snapshot of Durbar Square during the night time is the best — lights illuminating the monuments in the area and the image is pleasant to look at.
The exhibition is on till June 22 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
