Title: Living in the mist - the last nomads of Nepal
Creator: Kishor Sharma
Photographer: Kishor Sharma
About the series: “You are duniya, the outside world, and we are the ‘Rautes’, we don’t have houses – we have camps.” says a man perched on a rock, pointing at a camp of cloth tents hidden in the mist.
Only 140 remain in the foraging tribe of Rautes, from the western mountains of Nepal. They share an intimate and strong sense of attachment with the forest, but their culture and lifestyle seem to be threatened by the rapid development around them creating a clash between the modern society and their community.
