    Nepal has been called an impossible phantasmagoria, a land of harsh realities infused with the surreal. Like a young Tharu girl perched on a support post of a traditional long house, seeming to levitate, in the remote Dang Valley, Nepal seems to levitate between East and West, past and future. This is the magic of Nepal, a country of eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains including Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth.

    Kosovar Albanian refugees try to get the last bread thrown from an aid truck in the biggest refugee camp in Kukes, Albania, in April 1999. After the 1997 collapse of Albania’s economy, widespread looting and ethnic conflict broke out in Kosovo, a majority Albanian province in southern Serbia, which led to the mass exodus of thousands of ethnic Albanians in 1998 and early 1999; nearly all of these 850,000 refugees returned to Kosovo starting in mid-1999, many seeking revenge against the Serbs.
