FAIR & LOVELY - Beauty lies in Nepal

FAIR & LOVELY - Beauty lies in Nepal
Multimedia presentation by Liz Lance

Liz spent the last eight months making photographs and recording audio with young women in Nepal, asking them about their views on beauty, body image and femininity. The seven multimedia presentations are a combination of still photographs and recorded audio, using the young women's voices to tell their own stories. She will also speak briefly about the process of making multimedia, as well as the process of documentary storytelling.

Liz Lance, a current resident of Kathmandu, received a Fulbright Fellowship to document the effects of mass media on beauty, body image and femininity in young women in Nepal. Liz has lived in Kathmandu on and off since 1998, when she was a student on the University of Wisconsin’s College Year in Nepal. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Language and Cultures of Asia from the University of Wisconsin, studied Nepali culture, language and literature at Tribhuvan University’s Bishwa Bhasha Campus, and begins her Master’s degree in journalism and the University of Missouri in August 2009.
