Muddy Shoes, Nepal School Children (2019)
10.7 x 16 in.

Social distancing is not possible for an education.

In Kathmandu, Nepal, these school children are fortunate to pursue an education. Class rooms are no larger than 10 ft by 10 ft and each holds at least 35 students.

Many schools were badly damaged or destroyed in the 2015 devastating earthquake in Kathmandu. The majority of the schools are still in ruin and uninhabitable.

Touching and over-crowding are the norm for these school children and now it may be the price they pay for an education.
