Miss explores themes and issues associated with historic and contemporary feminism in China. Asking my models to wear the ubiquitous Chinese garment, the Cheongsam as a symbol of emancipation, whilst simultaneously being contained in a restrictive wooden box-like structure, symbolic of the patriarchy, my photographs aim to initiate a dialogue on the current state and tortuously slow development of women’s rights and gender equality in China today.
