Chan Tsz Ching (Charlotte) specializes in Photography. Her photographic images are usually monochromatic. Chan is usually inspired by the silhouette of objects. The imagery in black and white helps to place emphasis on the silhouette of the objects being captured and allows the audience to travel the silhouette with their eyes. She has previously done several works which involve gender issues. She is concerned about minorities such as the LGBT community and the intersex group as they are being isolated in society. Chan also explores the topics of sexuality and androgyny in her photography projects. She believes in the fluidity of sexuality. Despite her interests in gender issues and feminism, Chan refuses to define herself as a feminist as she thinks that feminism is often misinterpreted as anti-men or a reduction of feminine qualities in women.


Shape of God

Silver gelatin print

Set of 16: 20 cm × 25 cm each

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27.

I have folded the pages on an English Bible which hint that God is a man. This is the shape of God. God is not a man, yet God is referred to as a man due to the bias of the English language towards males.

「神就照著自己的形象造人,乃是照著他的形象,造男造女。」( 創世紀1:27 )
