Photo of the day: Women As Slabs of Meat


We ran a photo series this week by Nicole Chan called “Beauty Talks” — a reflection on changing beauty standards for women in modern China. This weekend, Nicole is curating two more relevant photos by favorite photographers.

“John Yuyi is a Taiwanese-born, NYC-based artist whose work gives a huge middle finger to stereotypes about shy Asian girls. Her art often explores the human body in a way similar to the late contemporary photographer Ren Hang.”
