Photographer Rohan Thapa’s photobook, Sutra, will be released amid a ceremony to be held in the Capital this weekend. The launch event will also see a presentation by Thapa about his work style as well as a display of dummy version of photo books produced during photo.circle’s Photo Book 101 workshop which was held last February-March.
Thapa, a graduate of political science, is currently based in Spain, working as a photographer. His works mainly focus on literary, social and political identities, with an extra emphasis on the nature.
“Sutra braids several discourses in one. The series that are intertwined try to make us escape through the hollows of the trees, to record in a blank sheet the contamination of the air by a multinational, to capture the visual fragility of the community and continue the mountain to the interior of the person,” reads the artist’s statement.
“Sutra is a book that shares a visual and tactile experience with consumption, blindness and nature.”
The book binds the pictures under categories such as Sunya—the space in nature; EU.PNEA—air pollution by a multinational corporation; IN VISIBLE—portraits regarding visual dependency; and PULSE—identity mirrored through mountains.
The 120-pages long book is priced at Rs 2800.
