Nagendra Gurung has shuttled back and forth between the Gulf and Nepal for the past 15 years. Right after high school, he moved to Dubai and returned to Nepal for a short stint back in Lamjung, then migrated once more to Saudi Arabia. He currently works as a bulldozer operator at the construction site of a large underground water channel for Al-Qassim city in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula. Taken with his cell phone, these photographs depict his everyday life as a migrant labourer, meticulously cataloguing his worksite, living quarters, and colleagues.
