The blacksmith

This man works as a blacksmith in the remote village of Jharlang, in the Upper Dhading District. After the earthquake that struck Nepal during May 2015, this village is completely isolated, making the life of the people who inhabit it more and more difficult. This job, even if is underpaid, is the principal income for his family that live in this poor village, but sometimes is not enough.
