Shadows of Shangri La: Nepal in Photographs
Exhibition Opening and Book Signing
5:00 PM Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the Center for Government and International Studies, South Building (CGIS South), 1730 Cambridge St.
From the sacred temples and congested streets of Kathmandu to the remote mountain villages of the Karnali Zone, photographer Kevin Bubriski has documented Nepal and its people since 1975. Bubriski will share his remarkable images of the country’s four-decade evolution from a traditional Himalayan kingdom to a globalized republic, and he will sign copies of his new book, Nepal: 1975 to 2011 (Peabody Museum Press).
Kevin Bubriski is the 2010-2011 Robert Gardner Visiting Artist Fellow at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology.
