Sagar Chhetri, Nepal

(Sorry for that!)

(Sorry for that!) revisits the visual history of Nepal’s various political agreements in an attempt to understand and reflect on the disenchantment of Nepali people towards the establishment. In 2006, a peace agreement ended a war that lasted a decade, promising reconciliation and hope. However, 14 years after the end of the war, many still live with grief and feel like the political changes haven’t brought about any substantial change.


Sagar Chhetri is a Nepali photographer living and working in Kathmandu. In his photography practice, he explores socio-political stories with a particular interest in questions of identity, representation and justice.

2020 Joop Swart Masterclass

For the first time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Joop Swart Masterclass took place online over a period of four months, and 24 participants and eight masters were selected to make the program more inclusive. The educational experience of the Joop Swart Masterclass is based on an assignment to produce a photo essay around a given theme. This year the theme was ‘Reset’.

From July to October 2020, the participants worked on their projects and received mentorship and guidance from the mentors.
