Photography Event to Raise Funds for Nepal Relief

A fundraiser for Nepal earthquake relief will take place tonight at The Plantation hotel in Phnom Penh, featuring an exhibition and sale of Nepali photographer NayanTara Gurung Kakshapati’s series, “Being Nepali.”

The portraits, previously shown in the 2015 Photo Phnom Penh festival, capture Nepal’s ethnic diversity.

In the wake of Nepal’s deadliest disaster on record—the April 25 and May 12 quakes that killed more than 8,500—the portraits become an appeal to alleviate human suffering despite differences.

“It made so much sense to show them again and try to raise money by selling them,” said Sara Holcombe, one of the event’s organizers.

All proceeds will go toward the Nepal-based Himalayan Disaster Relief Volunteering Group.
