Overview participating exhibitions
The Nepal Picture Library (NPL) Retelling Histories presentation showcases a collective endeavour in constructing a nation history through family photo studio portraits. Initiated and run by photo.circle (photocircle.com.np), this digital photo archive strives to document an inclusive history of the Nepali people by encouraging individuals and families to donate their photographs and stories to the archive. It hopes to contribute to the study of Nepali photography, generate knowledge, and raise questions about how we can explore issues of memory, identity, and history through images. Since its inception in 2011, the archive has collected over 50,000 photographs from different parts of Nepal.
