Pushparaj has shot everything from architecture, events, portraits to documenting lifestyle. He is a photographer with over 15 years of experience--including in his native Nepal and in the Greater New York City area since 2007. Highlights of his more than a decade’s work has seen him take on documenting landmarks in the area with other prominent photographers.
Born in a small village in the Himalayan frontier of Nepal, India, and Tibet, Aitwal credits his interest in photography to his search for pictures of his grandparents, who he had never seen. This led to his project of recording the people and life in his small, tightly knit communities in a series of valleys stretching between northwestern Nepal and India. Thus, what was originally a photography project evolved into Aitwal’s passion that defines his work and his other aspirations in life.
