Life Set in Stones – I is part of the project titled Mono No Aware that started during the forced isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The photograph was taken during the bried period where restrictions were lifted in Nepal and the photographer could go for extended walks around the Seti Gandaki river .


Mono No Aware is a collection of images that result from slowing down, taking time to observe, and putting those observations into a frame while admiring the ephemeral nature of life. Created in moments of solitude, often accompanied by inexplicable melancholy, these monochrome pictures are a peek into the world around me – a world that changes quickly and inevitably. It’s acknowledging that things exist – even for a brief amount of time – and that there is beauty in everything.
