Nestled among the Himalayans, Bhutan is one of the most isolated countries in the world, and known for its multitudes of rich traditions. But the socio-cultural landscape in Bhutan is fast changing, and this can be observed in the sartorial choices of its citizens. During daylight hours, wearing the the traditional gho and kira, is mandated by the Kingdom. But the rule is not followed strictly in the capital of Thimphu. These days, especially after television and the internet was introduced in the country 13 years ago, many of the clothes that the Bhutanese wear are emblazoned with Western slogans or brands. This project explores change through the juxtaposition of street portraits taken in the major Bhutanese cities of Thimphu, Punakha and Paro.
