Description: Mukunda Bahadur Shrestha became the first official photographer of the Nepal Tourism Department and spent the 70s and 80s traveling across Nepal, photographing landscapes, cultures and people presenting Nepal to the rest of the world through postcards, brochures, posters and travel magazines.

This is one of Shrestha’s favourite photos. Here, three young children pose for the camera in Tarkeghyang village, in the Helambu region northeast of Kathmandu. The wave-like peaks and dips of the Himalayas in the background is mimicked in the way the children stand and sit on an uneven wall, their eyes wide with curiosity and disbelief.
