Joe Sieder

Joe Sieder was a solo trekker on the Tamang Heritage trail when the 2015 Nepal earthquake hit. While he was in a relatively safe spot on the trail between Thuman to Lingling, he spent the next few days documenting the earthquake and its aftermath. Originally from the UK, Joe has spent most of the last decade living in Japan and Thailand, and traveling around Asia. His photographs from Nepal in the wake of the April 25th earthquake were featured in El Pais, the LA Times, ABC News and others. Since the earthquake, Joe has assisted various local NGOs and foundations in documenting Nepal’s relief and reconstruction efforts.
