Portraits from Nepal

In the three weeks, Nepal has been devastated by a 7.8-magnitude and a 7.3-magnitude earthquake that has, to date, left more than 8500 dead, thousands more injured and dozens still missing. It is, according to Reuters, the most deadly Himalayan quake on record.

I went to Nepal as part of the media contingent with the Gift of the Givers disaster relief team. While there I came across a beautiful people left shaken and distraught. The pictures below are portraits (mostly) that I took, which I hope captured the various emotions: from despair to sadness, and even some smiles of hope despite the chaos.
