This exhibition is a foray into emerging photo narratives in Nepal, historical and contemporary, and the ways in which they mobilise viewership. This ‘scope’ is about how lines of sight are being established by practitioners within the country, as well the larger South Asian region to surmount visual hierarchies and redraft the vernacular – one that is not only regional in its aesthetics, but challenges the notion of world photography and its definition in the present. It seeks to look at significant social-political, personal and artistic strands developing in photography from the region.
