Earthquake in Nepal: Before and After

I am personally heartbroken by what has happened in Nepal. Anyone who’s followed my photography for a while knows I’ve traveled there a few times, and have fallen in love with the country and people of Nepal.

I’ve been going through my photos, remembering the people I’ve met and the places I’ve seen in the Kathmandu Valley. Fortunately, I’ve heard from my friends in country, and they are all okay. Unfortunately, the disaster is widespread, with many lives lost and people injured.

Here is a photo of Kathmandu Durbar Square, created on my second trip in March, 2013:

The loss of lives and destruction of the Nepali infrastructure is absolutely astounding. Please consider helping support the people of Nepal by contributing funds to organizations which are providing resources such as water, food, shelter, medical care and other supplies to the Nepalis.

Please keep the people in Nepal in your thoughts and prayers as they struggle to recover from this horrific earthquake.
