Having an extreme passion for photography, renowned Belgian photographer Verhasselt frames Nepal in its most beautiful form
The opening ceremony of ‘Nepal in Belgian Eyes’ photo exhibition was held on March 1 at the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) premises. The new episode of NTB’s monthly photo Nepal series illustrated truly captivating photographs of Nepal by Danny Verhasselt, a Belgian travel photographer. The exhibition commenced with warm greetings from the executives of Nepal Tourism Board to Danny and his team.
The exhibition showcased most of Nepal’s popular tourist destinations including pictures of Mount Everest, the Annapurna range, Swayambhunath stupa, Boudhanath stupa, Tengboche Monastery, and Poon Hill. Continuing until March 7, the exhibition is a breath of fresh air and definitely worth a visit.
Exhibiting Nepal’s majestic mountains, resplendent topography, unique architecture, people and their culture; Verhasselt is a lover of Nepal and has visited about 14 times. From his very first visit in 1994, he was mesmerised and couldn’t help but come back for more. “When we first arrived, I fell in love with the country instantly because of all the colours, friendly people, its diversity and culture. The new people I meet and the experiences intrigue me”, says Danny.
As of now, the photographer is busy with the Nepali community in Belgium and has been involved in organising Nepali festivals like Dashain, Tihar, and Holi there. He is the General Secretary of Belgium Nepal Friendship Association and has been working closely with the Embassy of Nepal in Brussels.
