Our Village Our life shares with the reader an intimate story of life in the rural mountain village of Sikles, Nepal. The book aims to celebrate the photography project and gives readers an honest and personal insight into the lives of people in Sikles.
"This is an extraordinary book! It does what coffee table books are intended to do – amaze and educate the reader – but it does much more besides"
Dr. Robert Monro, Director of the British Council in Nepal.
Dr. Sara Parker is a Senior Lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University and has a long standing connection with Sikles in Nepal through her research. Since 2009 she has been involved in supporting a community based photography project ‘Sikles in Canvas’. Local people were provided with some basic training and technical support and over a two year period captured everyday life in Sikles from their own perspective. The book ‘Our Village Our Life’ has resulted from this project and provides an insight into daily life in Sikles. Any funds raised from the sale of the book go directly back to the local level via the Sikles Development Concerned Group.
