Prasiit Sthapit (b. 1988) is a visual storyteller based in Kathmandu. In 2016, he was the recipient of the Magnum Emergency Fund Grant and was selected for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass. He is currently associated Fuzz Factory Productions, a multimedia collective based in Kathmandu, photo.circle, a platform for photography in Nepal and Photo Kathmandu.

Prasiit Sthapit exhibit ‘Change of Course’ was invited by the programme committee to  participate in the 2018 Copenhagen Photo Festival: Photo City. ‘Change of Course’ presents a unique photojournalistic where Prasiit Sthapit has portrayed the Narayani River, a river that marks the border between India and Nepal. Over the years the river’s run has changed and with that the border. In this exhibition, Sthapit poetically depicts life in the liquid borderland of looming conflict.
