​美 (beauty)

A lifelong project, started Fall 2018

美 (mei) is the character for beauty in mandarin. I started this photography project in 2018, inspired by the beautiful people around me throughout my life.

 

Why

I grew up in Singapore, as an Asian culture, we often scrutinize our own appearance even as children. Slimming down was seen as being positive, often regardless of circumstances. We have a very narrow definition of beauty and many of whom I saw as beautiful people did not see themselves that way and often used degrading language on themselves. With Project Mei, I want to show everyone, with the help of my lovely models, what beauty really is, and to help others see how beautiful they all are.
