My heart is broken by the beauty of this place and its people. I wish I could stay longer, but I am so happy to have had this chance to participate in the artist residency here in Patan, Kathmandu, Nepal. There is a spirit in the air there, positiveness and lightness, some sort of sincerety still to be found. Light in these skies.

Follow updates to see more photos from there and from the exhibitions that took place in the Micro Galleries festival and Kaalo101 gallery.

Thanks to Micro Galleries for this opportunity.
