Descripción

Photographs by Chin-Chin Wu. Text by the models. "50 women were invited to participate in this project through the years 2006 to 2009. The shootings took place principally in Paris and Beijing. The portraits included in this book are presented anonymously, with the place of the shooting, the date of the session, and original words from each model. The nationalities of the models include Australia, Austria, China, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Holland, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Switzerland, Japan, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S.A. It is my desire that the portraits and the accompanying words speak for themselves."I think that morality has long since taken hold of the representation of the female body, more particularly their genitalia. They belong more to society than to women themselves." "The exposure of female genitalia implies an ontological vulnerability. Is this why it has remained as one of the last bastions of censorship in the field of representation? It seems to me that female genitalia have suffered from the polar treatments of paternal protectionism, which has excluded them from the social field, or on the contrary, male exploitation, which has demanded perfectly "cultivated" and remolded vulvas. I wanted to see if there was a strategy that could neutralize traditionally diametrical views of female genitalia operating on these paradigms of attraction-repulsion. This series came into being in order to examine our capacity to look at female genitalia as they really are, without resorting to a ready-made alibi." Chin-Chin Wu. Quarto, 295 x 240 mm. 76 pp., with 8 pictures in the cover and 50 portraits in colour. [ISBN: 978-3936165746] Softbound, coloured thread stitched. As NEW. N° de ref. de la librería 30464

Sinopsis:

In 2006, Chin-Chin Wu began photographing a systematic series of intimate portraits in Paris that would later be entitled Vis-à-vis: Portraits of New Women. Originally small-scaled and experimental in nature, by 2008, Wu had evolved the project into its present form of large-format, spectacularly subtle images of female empowerment. Shooting in Paris and Beijing, Wu engaged 50 women from 18 countries as subjects. The women voluntarily posed for their portraits and spoke for the record about their intentions. Dialoguing intimately with the history of photography and its representation of the female genitalia, Vis-à-vis intentionally flirts with ideas of fragility and power, eroticism and raw objectivity, medical precision and sexual primacy, generating an emotional tension that is both uneasy and arresting.
 
In 2010, a selection of this work was shown in a landmark duo exhibition with previously unshown works of Noboyoshi Araki in Tokyo. Due to Japanese censorship laws, the exhibition catalogues were seized by Japanese customs agents and subsequently destroyed.
 
This volume, published by Edition GALERIE VEVAIS, presents for the first time Wu's seminal project in its entirety. Designed by Berlin graphic designer and artist Susanne Weigelt and printed in Germany employing the finest materials and craftsmanship, in a small print run of 500 copies, this elegant and important book is destined to become a sought-after object for the serious collector.

From the Author:

50 women were invited to participate in this project through the years 2006-2009. The shootings took place principally in Paris and in Beijing. The portraits included in this project are presented anonymously, with the place of the shooting, the date of the session, and original words from each model. The nationalities of the models included Australia, Austria, China, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Holland, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, Mongolia, Nicaragua, Switzerland, Japan, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S.A.. It is my desire that the portraits and the accompanying words speak for themselves.
