Here are a few work prints from my last visit to Asia in March [ 2011]. I spent 4 weeks documenting the Maha Shivratri Festival at the Pashupatinath temple, Kathmandu, Nepal. The project has been ongoing for a few years now and I am starting to get the results I want- still way off finishing it though. I have piles of books and religious texts to do with their beliefs that I am working through, coupled with the fact that I can only visit the Saddhus for one month or so per year makes it a long term body of work. My next visit will be Decemberish- heading to Gujurat [ India] and then up to Himachal Pradesh in the Himalayas.
Here a few shots from previous visits to India and Nepal......
