Three photo stories about the unique aspects of human identity.
Galleria CUC invites you to yet another Cycle of exhibition of photographs taken by young and talented Nepali Photographers. Keeping the tradition of exhibiting high quality photographs, we are extremely please to present you with three photo stories this time, each dealing with a unique aspect of human identity.
Navarasa, a collection of self-portraits of Astha Shrestha explores the nine rasas, where each photo has tried to explore each of the Shringar, Hasya, Raudra, Karuna, Bibhatsa, Bhayanak, Shanta, Veer and Adhbhut rasas.
Ink’d is a reflection of the pop culture of applying tattoos, catching up like a fad among urban youth and has been documented by Arjun Karki. This photo story, narrated completely in black and white, tells the story of Pawan Kazi, a young man from Kathmandu who has his own reasons of altering the identity of a tattoo he already has.
The Tales of Dirty Feet is an exploration of the human feet, each at different stages of life. Sunil Shrestha, set out to collect a set of unique human feet, and as a result came up with seven such feet where every feet has a different story to tell.
Cycle 7: Identity opens on the 6th of January 2012 at Galleria CUC in Momomagic, Maharajgunj.
