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.

陳芷晴專注於擇影,她的影像一般都是單色的。陳芷晴經常受事物的輪廓所啟發,而這些黑白的影像有助於觀眾觀察事物的輪廓。她曾做過不少有關性別義題的作品,因為她關注社會中的小眾,例如是同志和跨性別者。陳芷晴於攝影作品中探討性取向和雌雄同體,她認為性取向是流動的。雖然對於性別義題有濃厚的興趣,但陳芷晴認為自己不是女權主義者。

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 )

我將英文版聖經中暗示神是男人的頁數摺起來。這是神的形狀。神不是一個男人,但基於英語對男性的偏頗,因而當大家提及神的時候,都不約而同地聯想到男人。
