Young Masculinities: Surveying Kathmandu’s Rapid Growth and its Social Implications

A Photo Project by Daisy Yang, Independent Documentary Photographer

Groups of young men come flocking into the burgeoning Himalayan metropolis of Kathmandu from their rural homes to find out what dreams are made of. In this chaotic transition, how do they navigate and define their emerging male identities?

Speaker Bio: Daisy Yang is a documentary photographer currently based in BC, Canada. A graduate of NYU’s Human Rights and Photography program, she devotes her time to documenting social issues, with a focus on migration, gender and the formation of identity. Her experience growing up in Taiwan and Canada lends her intercultural insights while approaching culturally nuanced and sensitive stories.
