Nepal & Mao
The exhibition ”Nepal & Mao” takes us to a country that has been official declared peace for many years back. But somehow the tension in the country is still present. Old royalist that won’t step down from army post, constants strikes and protest in the capital. Some regions with an ethnic majority have been starting to question the Maoist and Nepal’s control and striving after their own state and independence. In the exhibition of Jarlbro’s third book about Nepal, he travels across the country in busses and off-road vehicles meeting Maoist at their camps in the jungle and up in mountain. Following the tensions trough out the country, visiting communistic rally and riots. Underneath the chaos and political standpoint Jarlbro photographs doesn’t reveal the soldier instead the person behind the uniform.
