Oriental is often used as a misguided compliment to reduce Asian culture into a word because the complexity is rarely fully understood. There are multiple common false ideas like that they are submissive, quiet and obedient. There is also a mass fetishization of Asian women in society, particularly displaying them as the complete polarities of hyper-sexualization or the symbol of purity. It affirms the historical effect of colonization in Asia.
Asian women are an afterthought in various forms of media. There is a lack in physical representation in media unless it is a performative gesture of pseudo inclusion that still caters to the stereotype. The only remedy for this imagery crisis of under representation is by making photographs accentuating the variety of their existence. This project desires to convey to the world the power through diversity of personalities, appearances, interests and passions in the Asian diaspora. It shows the different variations of Asian femininity that is authentic and simultaneously unapologetic.
