WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHY
Lambda Print 31"x23"

 

Women Photography is fueled by an urgent quest to locate freedom amidst objectifying dislocation, forced categorizations, incomplete interpretations, stifling expectations and violent abstraction about women and photography. The project focuses on the challenges and contradictions latent in the false fantasy of the liberated American women from an Asian Immigrant artist with a journalist background. In addition, her work aims to expose our shared susceptibility to the normative power of media and to warn us about photography's complicity in such misrepresentation. With this work, she is also exploring photography's peculiar possibilities and limitations of photography as comprehended medium. She produces the pictures that simultaneously exemplify and expand what were once called pure-photography; pure photography VS simulacrum of the photography claiming what it wants was the pastiche of the former existence.
