GORKHA IN FOCUS

July 3, 2017 - July 9, 2017

An exhibition by Jasper Wilkins

In 2016, OLYMPUS Ambassador and documentary photographer Jasper Wilkins created an environmental organisation called ‘In Focus’ that provides creative content for companies and NGO’s focusing on environmental sustainability. In collaboration with OLYMPUS UK, Jasper will be hosting an exhibition in Art Bermondsey Project Space, alongside a book that will be distributed Internationally. These insightful and interesting stories demonstrate hope, beauty and determination in a changing environment, showing the importance of worldwide sustainability.

“I was once told ‘Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.’ And it stuck with me, the time for environmental protection is now and it is needed more than ever. One day we may observe a world that we created; with limited wildlife and water, flooding cities and we will ask ‘What happened’?”
– Jasper Wilkins

Gorkha is based west of Kathmandu, Nepal and was the epicentre of the 2015 earthquake killing nearly 9000 people and destroying thousands of houses and businesses. This project explores stories of hope in a rural community located in Gorkha and demonstrates the importance of environmental awareness through exploring individual stories of how climate change affects rural communities.

Jasper Wilkins is passionate about culture, nature and communication and recently spent three months working within Khadka Gaun, Gorkha as a team leader, focusing on income generating projects for Raleigh International and was inspired by the generosity, kindness and integrity of the people he encountered in this beautiful place.
