Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Daniel Byers

Part of a visiting eye clinic, a pair of Buddhist monks gesture to eye-charts in the remote village of Thukche, Mustang. Because of high rates of illiteracy in the area, the charts are marked only with directional E's.

Location: Thukche, Nepal
