International Competition 3

Young Sushila and Sapana are about to leave Nepal in search of new opportunities, leaving behind the rural daily life experienced by their mother and grandmother. Regarding the uncertainties of those who leave and the expectations of those who stay behind, the images bear witness to the gestures of affection intertwined with conflicts between the inevitable generational changes and the persistence of traditions. With the imminent separation, something unites these three generations of women: in order to move away, one needs to be closer.
