Kanak Mani Dixit....

Il y a quelque temps, étant toujours à la recherche de nouveaux documents, je suis tombé sur cette photo prise par Mr. Kanak Mani Dixit éditeur du magazine "Himal Southasian", écrivain et photographe. Je l'ai contacté en lui demandant l'autorisation de publier ce cliché sur mon blog. Il vient de me répondre positivement et m'a indiqué que cette photographie composée de deux différents clichés a été prise durant les années septante dans le village de Kaigaun (district de Dolpa)...La qualité de la reproduction n'est malheureusement pas très bonne mais cette photographie reste, je pense, néanmoins intéressante.......
