  • About the series: Change of Course: The first time Prasiit arrived in Susta, he had to walk from the river across the sandy bank to get to the village. He saw two small huts where people were selling tea and fish; he sat there and talked to them for a while. On his next visit, he did not see the huts. On asking a woman where the huts were, pointing towards the river she calmly replied, “Somewhere there, can’t be sure”. Susta has become a contested portion of Nepal within India, because of the changing course of the Narayani River. This is a poem dedicated to the people of Susta – their sorrow, their grief, their determination, their resistance, their persistence, and their isolation.
  • About the Photographer: Prasiit Sthapit, 1988, Nepal, is a Kathmandu based visual storyteller whose work deals with societies at the borderline, both literally and figuratively. Through photography, he chooses to show the experiences he has shared with the people in his pictures, and what they mean to him.
