A Souvenir from Nepal’s Streets: Tarek El Wazzi

Text by Tarek El Wazzi

It [street photography in Nepal] was unique and completely different from what I’ve experienced in Lebanon or in other countries I’ve visited. The diversity offered by Nepal is unmatched.

The richness and abundance of colors, the humbleness of the people there, most of which you encounter walking with a smile on their face.

Nepal allowed me capture many unique pictures that I am very fond of. I hope that I’ll get the chance to capture them again someday in the future. People – young and old – had stories in their faces that were captured by our cameras.

I followed this girl for several minutes as she was walking between the narrow walkways in Kathmandu. I liked this shot because it is a contrast from the hectic nature of the roads we were walking through around the market.

This photo resembles peacefulness in a rather chaotic and bustling area.

Tarek is one of the 17 photographers who went on BSP’s Nepal photo-trip in August 2012. This capture is only one among the many unique and stunning street photographs taken during that trip that will be showcased in our upcoming exhibition on June 11th and 12th at the UNESCO Palace.
