One month after Nepal earthquake, I visited Ratankot village in Sindhupalchowk District, which is the hypocenter. I photographed family portraits in front of collapsed houses, temporary houses, shelters, and houses under construction. At first, I was taking photos as a document of situation of this earthquake, but as proceeding taking photos, it came into view that their daily lifes is going on no matter how the earthquake was huge and tragic. They are working hard in the field from early morning to sunset. Many people are going abroad and seeking work as labor. They have old custom, polygamy, and more other village tradition and family affair.
