Nepal is home to many peoples and ethnic groups. This series, taken by a young photographer on his travels through the country, offers a little slice of a few of these divergent lives. So many ways of living; so many ways of viewing the world. So many differences, and yet there are also similarities. Looking under the surface, there is more connection than we might expect.
