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.
This work is inspired by novel with the same name by Jeffrey Eugenides.
The Three Feminine Sorrows
