World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 2013 - Photographic exhibition focusing on Kathmandu Valley World Heritage
Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square monument zone of the Kathmandu Valley WHS
The exhibition “Heritage and photography. A dialogue”, which UNESCO presents on the occasion of World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 2013, will showcase photographs on/from seven monument zones of the Kathmandu Valley World Heritage Site.
The exhibition draws attention to Nepal’s rich photographic patrimony and its contribution to documenting the country’s cultural heritage. The photographs selected for the show are examples of photography illustrating how rapidly the heritage sites nestled within their urban settings are transforming due to population growth, pollution and a lack of legal frameworks, among other factors.
