Nepal Earthquake anniversary: Images of endurance

Kathmandu, April 25

Exactly two years ago today, a massive earthquake of local magnitude 7.6 had rattled Nepal, leaving more than 9,000 dead and thousands of others injured.

Millions of lives were affected by the disaster as thousands of physical infrastructures collapsed or sustained significant damages.

Spanish freelance photojournalist Omar Havana was in Nepal during the 2015 earthquake.

Some of his photos of the quake were chosen among the best of the year by international magazines and media, such as The Atlantic and The Denver Post.

His photos from Nepal have been published in thousands of publications around the world, including on the front pages of The New York Times and stories in TIME Magazine, National Geographic and Paris Match, among many others.

Havana has recently launched a photo book ‘Endurance’ as “a tribute to the people of Nepal after the earthquake” compiling his photographs that he captured on the day of earthquake and its aftermath.

He had selected 72 best photos for the book from around 15,000 he had from the quake.

Here are some selected pictures from his book:
