We Are Here #3: Kathmandu — Dublin, Ireland

Granular Geographies

We journey to Nepal’s capital Kathmandu for a look at a city much misunderstood. Pico Iyer talks about his seminal book Video Night in Kathmandu, Rabi Thapa writes about the cliches that dominate western perceptions of Nepal, Manjushree Thapa recalls how the royal family was killed, Jan Wellman conducts a number of bizarre interviews with Asia’s most notorious serial killer, and we profile Thamel, a district like no other.

We Are Here is a magazine dedicated to a different city or district each issue. We combine the lo-fi and the high-end – long form journalism, poetry, humour and short stories, as well as a striking photographic narratives. All the images are taken on a smart phone, and the magazine is put together on a laptop. This is immersive publishing at its finest – a long-form postcard from some of the most interesting places in the world.
