Nepal; Working with disadvantaged women

Nepal | Tuesday, 4 December 2012 | 5 photos


For two weeks in January 2012, I volunteered as a photographer for the Seven Women Project of EPSA (Entire Power for Social Action) in Nepal. I was working alongside documentary filmer, Don Palmer, and founder of the organization, Stephanie Woollard. In the short time preparing a documentary for the organization I was asked to photograph the women that had been apart of the organization since its origin nearly four years ago. These women are all somehow disadvantaged in some way whether it be stuck in extreme third world poverty, physically or mentally disabled or under persecution from either their husbands, families or communities. In the tiny Indian-subcontinent country of Nepal, national healthcare and civil rights are not properly executed. A corrupt government and largely patriarchal social structure leaves little room for the freedom or safety of women.
This set of photographs are a snapshot of the faces and identities of some of these women.
