A Lotus Grows in Muddy Waters
These photos are a part of a personal project on the life around Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. I spent the first six months of this year documenting the people and environment around this Great Stupa.
I was born nearby but spent most of my childhood at a boarding school in India before immigrating to Canada. During my holidays I would circumambulate around the stupa with my grandmother. Many memories from these days are still imprinted in my mind. And although much has changed, the essence and aura of the Stupa still remains. This project began with the hope I would be given such moments again, this time capturing it in photographs so I can share with the world.
