Framing the Bride: Globalizing Beauty and Romance in Taiwan's Bridal Industry

Framing the Bride: Globalizing Beauty and Romance in Taiwan's Bridal Industry

With a wedding impending, the Taiwanese bride-to-be turns to bridal photographers, makeup artists, and hair stylists to transform her image beyond recognition. They give her fairer skin, eyes like a Western baby doll, and gowns inspired by sources from Victorian England to MTV.
An absorbing consideration of contemporary bridal practices in Taiwan, Framing the Bride shows how the lavish photographs represent more than mere conspicuous consumption. They are artifacts infused with cultural meaning and emotional significance, products of the gender- and generation-based conflicts in Taiwan's hybrid system of modern matrimony. From the bridal photographs, the book opens out into broader issues such as courtship, marriage, kinship, globalization, and the meaning of the "West" and "Western" cultural images of beauty.
Bonnie Adrian argues that in compiling enormous bridal albums full of photographs of brides and grooms in varieties of finery, posed in different places, and exuding romance, Taiwanese brides engage in a new rite of passage--one that challenges the terms of marriage set out in conventional wedding rites. In Framing the Bride, we see how this practice is also a creative response to U.S. domination of transnational visual imagery--how bridal photographers and their subjects take the project of globalization into their own hands, defining its terms for their lives even as they expose the emptiness of its images.

Such beauty!

Such beauty!

Yesterday we walked up the Cascade River and found this beautiful spot. Yet in 1929, the Cascade Dam, further upstream from this point, built to supply water for the tin mine in Derby, broke its walls after days of torrential rain and water from 60 to 100 feet high swept down the river and into Derby, drowning 14 people and destroying houses shops and filling the mine hole, reversing the flow of the Ringarooma River for five miles upstream, then on its returning surge, sweeping away all the bridges across the river between Derby and the sea. It was years before the mine hole was pumped out and new equipment brought in to re open the tin mine. Hard to imagine all that horror, looking at this image!
