The 2015 Nepal Earthquake

Photographs by James Nachtwey and Kevin Bubriski



Temporary Exhibitions, Kim Gallery


In the spring of 2015, just days after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake shook Gorkha District and surrounding areas in Nepal, photojournalist James Nachtwey ’70 documented the immediate aftermath among these devastated communities, both in urban centers and in mountain villages only accessible by helicopter. Six weeks later, photographer Kevin Bubriski arrived in Kathmandu and captured the rebuilding of a city and the resilience of its people. A few of those images by each photographer are on view in this exhibition.

This installation was created as part of the Nepal Earthquake Summit at Dartmouth (February 18–20, 2016) and was made possible by the Harrington Gallery Fund.
