About Didier Mayhew
Before getting into photography, Didier Mayhew worked as a psychologist with refugees, prisoners and victims of trauma. He later studied social anthropology, and conducted research in the Himalayan regions.
In 2009, he settled in Nepal and felt increasingly concerned about the situation of landless families living on the fringes of society. His involvement with them led him to dedicate himself to documentary photography.
Since 2016, Didier commutes between Nepal and Southeast Asia, and works with a different approach on new photographic projects.
