  • 这是对人与自然复杂关系的一次探索,这种关系定义了尼泊尔东南部一个名为坦吉亚巴斯蒂(Tangia Basti)的村庄。该作品旨在抗议尼泊尔政府提出的尼基戈德(Nijgadh)国际机场修建计划,直面为了经济社会发展及居民不确定的未来而对森林造成的潜在破坏。
      意大利艺术家彼得罗·洛·卡斯托毕业于帕斯沙拉南亚媒体学院(Pathshala South Asian Media Institue),主修国际摄影课程,目前在曼谷工作,担任清迈大学民族研究和发展中心研究员。洛·卡斯托对摄影的兴趣一方面源于他个人的一次精神觉醒,另一方面源于其围绕内心探索、精神性、以及人与自然关系等话题的实践。
      This is an exploration of the complex relationship between man and nature that defines the village of Tangia Basti in south-eastern Nepal. The work aims to protest against the Nepalese government's proposed plans for the construction of Nijgadh International Airport, confronting the potential destruction of the forest for the sake of economic and social development and the uncertain future of its inhabitants.
      Italian artist Pietro Lo Casto graduated from Pathshala South Asian Media Institue with a degree in International Photography and is currently working in Bangkok as a researcher at the Centre for Ethnic Studies and Development at Chiang Mai University. Lo Casto's interest in photography stems partly from a personal spiritual awakening and partly from his practice around topics such as inner exploration, spirituality, and the relationship between man and nature.
