I was recently in Nepal photographing a medical trip into the remote regions of the far west of the country. I returned home 48 hours before the earthquake hit. There were many immediate emotions, concern for friends, sadness for the tragedy for so many, the desire to be back to help, and the memories of the many beautiful people I met in Nepal. With continued prayers, I decided to post the faces of those I met along the way. The people of Nepal.

Beautiful images… And, a third earthquake has hit a few hours ago.
I’m just learning of it, tragic
We felt the tremors, here in Delhi, each time. But not the devastation
I had wondered about your recent trip…thank you for sharing, they are beautiful.
Thanks Mrs P
Can you try to contact the families? If you had them sign model releases. If any of these peole are no longer living the families woudl like to have the pictures. I touchy subject. Beautifull people lovely photographs.
I am in contact with these families, fortunately most of them are in far Western Nepal, away from the epicenter,and are doing alright. Appreciate your concern…
Beautiful strong powerful images. Thank you for sharing them.
Appreciate that Melinda!
Beautiful strong images. Thank you for sharing them. They move me to pray.
I was going to say ‘beautiful pictures of beautiful people’ but then there seems to be an abundance of the word in comments by fellow bloggers. But, is there a better way to express what I feel when I see these pictures? No. So there you go – beautiful pictures of beautiful people. Indians are lucky to have gentle Nepalis live among us – we are lucky to be able to learn from their resilience and courage. God bless!
Good words, thanks Vibha!
So incredibly beautiful.
Thanks so much!
I am so heartbroken about Nepal as it is a special place to me. I had friends there when the earthquake hit. So tragic.
I’m heartbroken too, it’s really tough

I’m so glad you posted these photos today, especially in light of the new quakes. I’ll post over to Twitter and remind people to be generous in donations to one of the charities assisting (for me that’s International Medical Corps).
Thanks Angeline, and appreciate the recommendation…
It makes quite an impression seeing the pictures so close after the tragic earthquake Russ. Hopes and prayers to the people of Nepal.
Yes, they need our prayers more than ever…
Beautiful potraits! Yet sad about the disaster. Today, I also posted my drawing Pray for the Nepal earthquake. May god bless them!
Such a tragic disaster, especially with further quakes happening in the following hours/days.
Thanks Vicki, and yes, the extent of the tragedy is hard to wrap your mind around…
You were fortunate to have not been in Kathmandu. I’m sure you’ve reflected on how you were protected to continue this special work you do.
like it so much, thank you
appreciate your letting me know!
