From the organisers:
Namaste and greetings from Kathmandu!
The April and May earthquakes in Nepal have caused tremendous loss of lives and livelihoods. In addition to losing homes and infrastructure, the Nepali people have lost many important heritage sites. Rebuilding these sites will be as important as rebuilding homes and other infrastructure. It will create employment for thousands, boost tourism- an industry that employs millions, and most importantly restore a sense of identity for the Nepali people who have strong cultural and emotional ties to these sites.
Photo Kathmandu, an international photography festival that will be launching in November, is promoting a Special Print Sale to raise funds to contribute towards the rebuilding of heritage sites in Patan. This Special Print Sale features 35 beautiful photographs contributed by two archives – Nepal Picture Library and the Nepal Peace Corps Archive, and is being managed pro bono by photo.circle and Kazi Studios.
All funds raised from the Special Print Sale will be channeled through Kathmandu Valley Preservation Trust who will be the technical implementing partner for this effort.
Please support this effort by buying a print, or two or many! Please also share this information within your personal and professional networks: http://support.photoktm.com
Although Nepal is no longer in international headlines, it needs your continued love and support.
With warm greetings and gratitude,
NayanTara Gurung Kakshapati
