Nepa~laya’s nationwide photo exhibition
Nepa-laya, the publisher of a critically acclaimed book Palpasa Cafe is organising nationwide exhibitions to disseminate the message of peace to much wider audience from March 31. The traveling show called A People War - Photo Exhibition Tour will put on show pictures that demonstrate the human and material cost of ten years of conflict. Altogether 70 photographs selected from the recently released picture book, A People War will be put on the exhibit.
“Blowing up the pictures on digital prints has added more life to all the photographs and multiplied the impact. We have designed a portable,light-weight and high-quality exhibition,” said the book’s designer, Navin Joshi.Nepa~laya will also be organising interaction programs for local media and photojournalists in all the ten venues where the exhibitions will be held.
“Working on this book has opened my eyes to the role of media in conflict resolution and reconciliation,” says Kunda Dixit who envisioned the bi-lingual picture book, adding “we now want to make the photographs more accessible to a larger public. Meeting photographers who contributed to the book and others throughout the country to share our experiences will be a great learning opportunity.” The exhibition will kick start in Jiri on 31 March and will visit Chautara, Lahan, Ilam, Narayanghat, Nepalgunj, Dhangadi, Tansen, and Pokhara before concluding in Kathmandu a month later.
