Kathmandu (Nepal), October 14th 2018. Wearing a mask to prevent his nose and mouth to breath polluted air, the Buddhist monk Pasang Thunglu (29) poses for a portrait in the busy Kalanki area of Kathmandu.
“When I used to come to Kathmandu as a kid, the air quality was not bad. But when I came back after a long time, in 2015, the air was unbreathable, very dusty. The earthquake made things worse, because now there are lots of construction sites in town, which are also creating a lot of dust.”, says Mr. Thunglu.
