Best known for her project “Beauty Recovery Room,” which portrays young women in the aftermath of undergoing cosmetic surgery, Ji Yeo is interested in how ideas of “beauty” are internalized by women and how they come to define and enforce ideals of beauty upon their own selves.  


Yeo will discuss this work in a lecture that will take place on Zoom; join here.


The MPS Digital Photography i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series features leading photographers and artists, hardware and software developers and industry experts.


Note: All events listed on sva.edu/events are in Eastern Time (ET).
