This book is PART 1 of The Himalayan Project, a collection of artist’s books made as different installations, totally embracing the city of Kathmandu and the nature of the Himalayas with a pure empathy. The spreads combining realistic content with a colourful and dreamy atmosphere, produce lasting impressions of the places explored and invite the reader to breathe more deeply, into the wild of his/her own narratives.
“This is not documentary. It is much more exciting to see this book as a cinematic haiku, or a photographic and poetic short story, amazed by the intensity and grace of the moment, far beyond memory. Photography has many interesting links with literature, to observe, describe and depict. The recently deceased American photographer Larry Sultan compared his own practice as a photographer with this of Raymond Carver whose short stories had his admiration: ‘You think, “he’s seen this,” but he’s taking that moment of observation and letting it go, giving it some wings, following it, rather than nailing it. You’re riffing off of reality.’ ” (Inge Henneman)
