Kristin Lau’s Light for Life: Solar Energy in Nepal is the follow-up photo series to her August 2015 Vistek Toronto gallery exhibit “Working Nepalese”.
Light for Life once again features the people of Nepal, only this time, it documents how renewable energy, specifically Solar Power, is helping in Nepal’s ongoing recovery from the devastating earthquakes earlier this year.
Light for Life documents the struggles that the people of Nepal are still going through, and how the non-profit organization SunFarmer is working with them to bring much needed renewable energy options to the region.
Shot while on assignment for Photographers Without Borders, Kristin’s series of stunning images gives us a glimpse of Nepal six months after the terrible earthquakes that devastated the region as well as the impact that groundbreaking solar energy has on a people and a region starving for energy.
renewable energy is providing both light and hope for a nation of people renowned for their resilience”
