Images from  my last personal project about the side effects of the Road Expansion Project in Kathmandu city (Nepal).

The ambitious dream of a modern city with wider roads is turning into a nightmare for innumerable families. Most of them, not receiving any compensation from the government, are forced to demolish their homes with their own hands in benefit of the “2” meters wider new road and to pay for the costs of the new buildings. In the meantime they live in unsafe ruined houses or, if they can afford it, renting another place.  With this story I just want to give some voice to the voiceless.
