Please join us for the screening of "Then and Now"; a collection of images by photographer Scot Faiia that compare people and places around Kathmandu in a span of 20 years. This body of work is thought provoking in many ways and encourages us to contemplate on 'change' and what it means to our city scape, our environment, our lifestyles and our future.

About Scot Faiia
Scott has lived and worked in Asia for more than 20 years, in East Africa for nine years, in the Caribbean for three years and in Egypt for three years. His serious interest in photography developed as a means to interact with the diverse people and cultures he encountered in his work. In many ways this interaction, and the possibility of capturing through photography the hope and beauty he encountered, was a counterbalance to the grim realities he grappled with in his relief and development work. After a ten year absence Scott recently returned to Nepal to focus his energies on photographing the wonders of life in the Kathmandu Valley.
