Book Launch: Endurance by Omar Havana

Photojournalist Omar Havana was living in Kathmandu when the 2015 earthquakes struck. In the wake of the disaster, Mr. Havana started to document Nepali life. Gradually, global media’s attention on the issue waned, but the photographer didn’t stop working—he traveled around Nepal documenting both the destruction and the recovery as a testimony to the resilience of the Nepali people. His book, Endurance is the outcome of his efforts.

Omar Havana was born in Spain in 1975. He is an award-winning photojournalist living in Asia since 2008. He moved to Nepal in October 2014 where he had been covering a wide spectrum of stories, mostly focused on the human dramas, achievements and fights to improve the situation of the country.

 

His photos during the earthquake were published by dozens of the most important publications around the world, including front pages in The New York Times. Some of his photos during the earthquake have been chosen among the best of the year by international media such as The Atlantic and Getty Images, receiving several international awards for his work in Nepal.
