The Aastha House Project: THE BOOK!!

Posted by: Margreta (Maggie) Kerr

The Aastha House Project:
Photographs by Naomi Johnson and Nepali Children

A BEAUTIFUL BOOK FOR A GOOD CAUSE In 2005, American photographer Naomi Johnson arrived in the turbulent Himalayan kingdom of Nepal, bearing cameras for the children of Aastha House, “House of Hope,” a small orphanage on the outskirts of Kathmandu. Over a period of months, they worked and played together to create a photographic view of this beautiful, troubled country as seen through the eyes of children. The Aastha House Project contains 108 full-color pages of images that are by turns gritty and dreamlike, gorgeous and disturbing, and always intimate and surprising. All profits from the sale of this book go to benefit the children of Aastha House, through the Rising Child Nepal Foundation, and JustCurious, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating collaborative projects with children.
