NEPAL A Tribute

About this ebook

In the Spring of 2015 I was shooting in the Kathmandu valley for almost a month. Shortly after I left a disastrous earthquake stroke the country, once again, with terrible consequences for people and historic heritage.
After little more then two years the nation is rebuilding itself with resilience and courage, counting on people so used to hardships to make the process apparently swift.
The images reveal the beauty and vitality of this country, it’s contrasts, spirituality and immense culture.
This is a dedication to Nepal and it’s people.

About the author

 Andrea Pistolesi likes to think of himself as a traveller who takes photos rather than a travelling photographer, although time has done much to reshape the original idea. Following his geographical studies he has published reportage in leading Italian and international magazines as well as numerous monographs. A project lasting more than ten years on the world’s major religions produced more than six books. His style of composition, strongly influenced by his Florentine origins, is combined with his very personal rendering of natural light. One of the pioneers of digital photography (in 1998 he published the book Back In Town dedicated to his early experimentation with the technology), he uses colour as one of his most personal traits. He is an enthusiastic supporter of digital fine art printing (he was one of the first Digigraphie® artists), which he considers, along with new techniques in general, the “retaking of the darkroom by colour photographers”.
