Please join us for the next Himalaya Program virtual event! Daisy Yang will share her work with us in this special presentation, rescheduled from April 2020.

Groups of boys and young men come in droves into the burgeoning Himalayan metropolis of Kathmandu from their rural homes to find out what dreams are made of. In this chaotic and challenging transition, how do they navigate and define their emerging male identities? Join photographer Daisy Yang as she explores these questions through her photography work in Nepal. The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a Question and Answer session facilitated by Himalaya Program Steering Committee member, Mark Turin.
