Prof. Kevin Bubriski first visited Nepal in 1975 as a 20-year-old Peace Corps volunteer. He came with a deep curiosity about the place and a Leica M3 camera in hand. He began taking photos of the people he met and the landscapes he saw—and he has never stopped. Kevin formed many close relationships over many visits to Nepal. When he awoke to a flurry of emails about the recent earthquake, he immediately took to Facebook. To his relief, he saw messages from friends in Kathmandu indicating they were safe. But there is still uncertainty about the fate of many Nepalese located in remote part of the country. Hear the story and view Kevin’s images from Nepal at this NPR story.
