UK charity, PHASE Worldwide presents a beautiful selection of photography and art from Nepal to help raise money and awareness for the earthquake affected Himalayan communities.
This February, PHASE Worldwide presents a beautiful and inspiring photography and art exhibition highlighting the culture, hopes and energy of the people they work with in isolated Nepalese villages.
This colourful and dynamic event is particularly pertinent almost two years following the devastating earthquake in Nepal where many people lost their homes and families.The exhibition offers a unique story of resilience and strength in some of the world's most remote landscapes.
PHASE Worldwide is a UK registered charity that provides sustainable health, education and livelihood opportunities to people living in isolated Himalayan communities. All proceeds from the exhibition will go towards PHASE projects in Nepal.
Several stunning photography portfolios make up the majority of the exhibition. The first is by Charlie Campbell, a London based photographer who visited remote PHASE project areas in April 2014 (www.charliecampbell.co.uk). The second is by Jose Vegas, a Bristol based photographer from Spain who travelled throughout Nepal to document the country's wonderful culture (www.josevegas.co.uk). The third portfolio is by Aron Klein, a photographer from London who has worked on a diverse range of jobs, ranging from capturing the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, to documenting pilgrims on the roof of the world in Tibet (www.aronklein.co.uk).
The exhibition will also display artwork by two Nepalese artists. The first is Manish Harijan (www.manishhorizon.com), a controversial contemporary artist who has had two solo exhibitions in Siddhartha Art Gallery, Kathmandu, Nepal. There will also be work by ML Art, a self-taught freelance artist from Kathmandu, Nepal with a primary focus on detailed pen and ink illustrations, paper-cut, clay sculptures and traditional mural painting (http://mlart21.wixsite.com/mlart-21).
