I just couldn’t but repost this fabulous photo reportage by Buro 24/7 Singapore. This seriously cool company provides coverage and access to the world of fashion and contemporary culture told through an Asian lens – from up-to-the-minute reviews of international fashion shows to local recommendations for a nightcap. It was founded by style maven and digital powerhouse Miroslava Duma and Singapore is the first country in Asia to join the Buro 24/7 family and is the eighth edition of the cutting-edge site.
And recently Buro 24/7 focussed on Nepal with a photoshoot which falls under their “giving back” focus as limited prints of the photos will be available for purchase. The #BuroGivesBack initiative is done in partnership with Leica Camera Asia Pacific and all proceeds from the sale will go towards helping underprivileged kids supported by Nepali NGO, Children & Youth First. The #BuroInNepal photo exhibition is open to public and will be held at #01-18, Leica Galerie Singapore, Raffles Hotel Arcade from 29 June to 11 July. 2016
