Nepal Earthquake - The Impact of Instagram

In the past two months, in a span of just three weeks, Nepal faced two tragic 7+ magnitude earthquakes. The quakes caused severe damage, resulting in the deaths over 8000, and injuring more than 19000 people. To document this disaster, and bring attention to the plight, photographer Sumit Dayal, born and brought up in Kathmandu, came up with the idea of starting an Instagram feed called NepalPhotoProject (NPP). The feed began on April 26th, a day after the quake, and now there is a group of over 60 photographers from all over the world who are contributing to this feed. We got in touch with Tara Bedi, a Delhi-based freelance writer who is curating the posts, to find out more about the project, how it came into being, and how it is helping the cause.

INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic

Polaroid cameras are fun is something all of us would agree to. We got hold of the black Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic instant camera which is the highest spec camera in the Instax Mini range as of now. This range also includes the Mini 8, Mini 7s, Mini25, Mini 50s and Instax 210. According to Fujifilm, the Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic has the features of a traditional analogue camera and has an enhanced capability to capture light creatively. Let’s see how it performed.

Heaven in the Himalayas - Paro

The land of the thunder dragon, Bhutan, is also a land from a different time. Steeped in tradition and culture the only way to truly appreciate it is by visiting it. "The land of the Thunder Dragon" - Druk Yul, as it’s called in Tibetan, is indeed the Last Shangrila protected by the mighty Himalayas from the rest of the world.
