“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine. Fabulous!”Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
Photographer Sujoy Das and writer Lisa Choegyal have collaborated in their second volume, this time capturing the essence of the majestic scenery and reality of daily life in the Solukhumbu. They delve beneath the surface of the Everest region of Nepal to reveal its historical influences, hidden seasons and current pressures. A foreword by leading mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington, preface by cultural scholar Dr Lhakpa Norbu Sherpa and drawings by artist Paula Sengupta adds depth to this unusual book about a familiar destination.
