Treasure of Nepal

Started 14.06.2016

Ended 20.08.2016

Treasure of Nepal is a beautifully designed art publication to accompany the Treasure of Nepal exhibition at Lahti Art Museum - Sept 2016. Published by Maahenki oy in Finland

For the last 18 months I’ve been photographing the life and work of Nepalese crafts men and women in Kathmandu.

My journey took me all over the Kathmandu valley, on a bicycle, in taxis and by motor scooter, meeting crafts men and women in a wide variety of disciplines. Their skills are deeply ingrained in the fabric of Nepal’s cultural traditions going back centuries. They follow in the footsteps of their ancestors; creating stunning works of art with tools they make themselves.

It would take many volumes to cover all of the disciplines that the Kathmandu valley has to offer and so in this book I have made a personal selection of the crafts and the makers that inspired me most.

In these richly illustrated pages you will find lost wax casting of copper, gilding, statue face painting, repoussé, wood carving, stone carving, drum making, thanka painting, Tibetan jewellery, paper making, silk thanka, textiles and shell carving.

Change is happening in Nepal. The children of these crafts men and women are going into higher education. They are leaving the family tradition behind and so in years to come many of these crafts might die out.

Treasure of Nepal is a stunning book printed on the highest quality art book paper – Finnish Language Version and English Language Version – a photographic document at a unique period in Nepal’s history that illustrates the life and work of this gifted group of artisans – with stories that tell of my own experiences living among them in recent years.
