Photographer's Note

Wondering what she was pondering about who seemed to be peering into infinity....

Just an ordinary everyday street people when she stole my attention and easily being one of most colourful characters amongst the local women in the hustle & bustle of Thamel district, Kathmandu.

Nepal is a veritable mosaic of different ethnic groups whose languages, culture and religion have over the centuries penetrated and settled the hills and valleys from the north, south, east and west. Despite this diversity, Nepal has a tradition of harmony and in this land of ethnic elements as varied as its landscape, the principles of integration have been accepted since ancient times.


The Newaris who are predominantly Hindu being the dominant ethnic group with the greatest concentration can be found in Kathmandu Valley, who descent from both Tibeto-Burman and Indo Aryan speaking people. Traditionally a highly literate, Newari art and architecture tend to be the most visible part of Nepalese civilization.
