Sex is an indispensable part of human life. Nowadays, topics related to sex are increasingly being valued. It
includes freedom, equality, safety, and education, among many others. BDSM is a special expression of sex.
In China, due to historical and cultural reasons, discussion and presentation of BDSM themed art and culture
have always been taboo. Nowadays, China’s culture and art environment is gradually becoming more open
and diverse, and more and more people are starting to accept and explore aesthetics and values that are
different from traditional concepts. BDSM themed art is gradually attracting more attention and exploration.
In this series of works, I have integrated BDSM themes with elegant fashion, using various props and
costumes such as handcuffs, whips, bondage ropes, shackles, and leather clothing, to create a strong visual
impact and emotional tension. These elements not only represent BDSM themes but are also classic elements
in the fashion world.
Through the perspective of fashion photography, I hope to create a visually powerful and beautiful effect that
causes reflection and contemplation on topics such as sex and freedom, sex and equality, sex and safety, sex
and education, and that we should respect everyone’s sexual orientation and choices.
