About this title


A collection of fine art b&w portraits of the Nepali people and landscape taken by a one-time Peace Corps volunteer. Each large format print is well reproduced with broad tonal qualities. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

American photographer Bubriski traveled to remote areas of Nepal "to document a time and a way of life slipping inexorably into the past." He succeeded admirably, and the result is this collection of nearly 90 black-and-white photographs of the Nepalese. A former Peace Corps worker in Nepal in the 1970s, Bubriski returned to this small, exotic kingdom and, over a period of three years, trekked to four different regions. His large-format camera engendered an unhurried photographic process that yielded direct, formal portraits. His shots are not intended to catch the spontaneous moment but rather to record the deliberate encounter. While most of the images are portraits, a few are stunning, somewhat abstract landscapes. Bubriski's photographs are held in several permanent museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Highly recommended for photography and Asian studies collections.
