Bhutanese-Nepali Neighbors — Photographs by Tariq Tarey
The history of the 20,000+ Bhutanese-Nepali people in Columbus is rapidly becoming the history of Ohio. Beginning in May 2017, the Ohio Historical Center will house a photographic exhibition of the Bhutanese-Nepali Community in Columbus Ohio. The show will consist of 30 photographs taken by Tariq Tarey. The photographs will be arranged in a manner that will emphasize the historical sequence of the Bhutanese-Nepali refugee experience, from living and working in Bhutan, to being forced to leave Bhutan, the experience of living in refugee camps in Nepal for 20 years or more, to resettlement in Columbus, to finding jobs, and buying homes, and to finally becoming American Citizens.
