“Kheng Colours” – A photo essay and article in the new Bhutanese monthly magazine “THE RAVEN”

Seiten aus PhotoEssayMarkusWild_RavenMagazine-2_Seite_1

On the auspicious occasion of the first anniversary of the Royal Wedding in Bhutan (on October 13, 2012) the inaugural issue of “The Raven”, a new monthly magazine was published.

Beginning of September I was asked if I could contribute a photo essay with accompanying text to the new publication and am now happy to see how my article “Kheng Colours – Students in the remote village of Kagtong explore and document life and culture in their village using modern digital Photography” became part of it.
