Name: Xander Folkes
Camera: Minolta Autocord
Film: Kodak Portra 160
Location: Province 6, North West, Nepal
I work as an election observer and was posted to North West Nepal, a place the the trekkers don't visit and where visitors are very much a rarity. The pictures are a mix of election-related images (including one accidental double shot which really works) and people going about their work oblivious of the electioneering going on around them.
I deliberately varied the focus a bit so the sharpest pictures are those who have the highest standing in society, down to the young lad in the roadside cafe who is part of the most marginalized.
