The Exhibit

Held in the Community Gallery of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, "Explore Nepal" will show 23 photographs chosen from hundreds of frames made during a journey to Nepal in April 2012. Documenting life in the Himalayan country's cities, countryside and temples, these film-based images represent a fine-art take on a documentary tradition. All B&W photographs were hand-made by the artist in the AGSM's own darkroom facilities.
