Kevin Bubriski’s deep attachment for Nepal began over 43 years ago when he joined the Peace Corps and was sent to the far northwest of the country. Inspired by his annual visits to Nepal and his lifelong relationship with the country he has published Mustang in Black and White with co-author Sienna Craig, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Dartmouth College.
As explained in a recent article by Glacier Hub, “Bubrinski has witnessed significant changes in the landscape and culture due to climatological shifts, including deglaciation and a nearly 25 percent reduction in Himalayan glacier mass over the past 30 years. His primary focus has been capturing the lifestyle and experiences of the Nepalese people within the context of climate change. His work exposes a raw, organic and moving perspective of the people who inhabit Nepal.”
Book launch events with Sienna Craig were held last month in Kathmandu, Nepal in conjunction with PhotoKathmandu2018. An exhibition of Bubriski’s Mustang photographs are on exhibit throughout the month of November in Kathmandu’s Taragaon Museum. Craig recently presented about the book at the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting in San Jose, CA.
