Katmandu Bazaar:
An Exhibition of Faces

In May 2006, I exhibited a series of forty black and white photographs taken in and around the busy marketplace of Katmandu, Nepal. They are all 'found' images, pictures taken in a documentary style, discovered faces going about their business in the Katmandu bazaar. A coffee table book of the exhibit is available for sale. Price is $100.

"Some viewers are drawn to the other worldliness of the setting, some feel uneasy with the closeness of the shots, perhaps believing them to be an exploitation of privacy and culture. But I see character in the faces; a purpose, a determination for everyday living. None are posed. I like to think those who seem aware of the lens dismiss it as irrelevant, their true character emerging in spite of the momentary intrusion".
