Taiwanese photographer Yung Cheng Lin has created a powerful photo series all about womanhood, in a thought-provoking look at what it is like growing up and learning to love your body.
Covering issues like sexuality, menstruation, and unrealistic beauty ideals, Lin (also known as “3cm”) hopes to remove the stigma around these issues with his controversial style. Using simple props like stationary and string, Lin draws attention to different representations of women’s bodies.
“The main appeal is to discuss the morality issue, especially in women … the definition this society nowadays has given to women is quite narrow, judgmental, and unfree, and the media has great influence on it particularly,” he tells The Creators Project.
“When people don’t follow the latest fashion trends, they are considered as out-of-fashion or black sheet. This phenomenon is obvious to see among women. For instance, women need to shave hair or lose weight to keep good shape.”
