Photo of the day: Rui Chen’s Walking Stick


This week’s photo series is “CELEBRATE WOMEN” — directed by Nicole Chan, with support from other talented photographers. Women respond to the question “What empowers you?” in these raw, minimalist portraits.

“After my spinal surgery, I relied on a cane to walk. It’s been two years now, during which I diligently practiced using my own strength to walk. This empowers me because I am now cane free!”

– 吳瑞春 Wu Rui Chun, photographed by Nicole Chan, Taipei, Taiwan, 2018
