Selfies in Nepal

During their many school site visits, EF Team Nepal had ample opportunity to interact with and photograph students. Most children living in economically developed countries are pretty inured to the presence of a camera; they have lived with smart phones or Go Pros or other digital imaging format for most – or even all – their lives. But for rural children, a selfie may mean seeing themselves, crisp and undistorted, for the first time. Their raw excitement at watching themselves being captured in photo, or being photographed and seeing the result instantly, could convert even the die-hard selfie hater. Seriously, who can resist that kind of joy?
