On April 25th, 2015 Nepal was hit by the devastation of Mother Nature: an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 that killed almost 9,000 people and injured more than 22,000. In the aftermath of that fateful day in April, almost three million people were made homeless, as hundreds of thousands of homes and other buildings were turned to rubble. In the months following the earthquake, aftershocks continued to hit the country on an almost daily basis; a magnitude 7.2 hit the country in May adding more devastation.
The book Endurance by Omar Havana is a humble tribute to and a legacy for those who are working hard to see their nation rise again. It tells the story of Nepali people resilience, the story of a life spirit that spreads, like the smiles on their faces, over the streets filled with debris and the ruins of their homes.The book is available at Visa pour L'Image offical bookstore La Poudriere and at FotoEvidence
