L'amant-- a self portrait series directed and styled by Yu-Sheng Chiu, digital
Sackville NB, March 2020
This series is loosely inspired by Les Amants by Rene Magritte in 1928. It aims to explore the solitude and anxiety from the unknown that as a person I feel a lot but often try really hard to ignore. I see these images as a resolution to gradually open to myself. And by purposely not setting the focus it creates a comforting distance between the viewer and myself, but still remains a permission for them to peek into my world to an extend.
