Posture (2020)
Artist Book, Translucent PVC, 5.7*8.8cm

Private photography has been greatly commercialized in China in recent years. The archetype of the models’ poses developed from the period of Calendar Girls in the 19th and 20th centuries. After comparing historical images with contemporary ones, Yingying has summed up four classic poses and featured ten pictures of each pose in this series of artist books.

Each book is bound in a way that is similar to the “peacock’s tail”. Through opening and closing the book, the characteristic of each picture and the commonality of all pictures are displayed respectively. With the mini size, I attempt to point out that women have long been seen as the objects under scrutinizing.
