REMAINDERS – Bungumati

The furniture were buried and broken under the house’s rubble. There were still some clothes hanging on the standing walls and books scattered all over the ground. I’d heard stories about the struggles and problems of earthquake victims but seeing what remained after it, up close made me think again, just how hard it could’ve been for them… for all of us.w hard it could’ve been for them… for all of us.

I chose to take pictures of the things that were left behind after the earthquake. I believe that even the simplest things around the household held some kind of story. All these objects in my pictures are a part of a bigger story, a story of a society, a family and an individual.

The purpose of my project is not to show the physical damages or statistics of any sort. my intention is to show the emotional damage done on the people through the broken and abandoned objects that they once used.
