Yung Cheng Lin is a Taiwanese photographer publishing under 3cm. The photographer explores the stereotypes surrounding sexuality and the status of women in our modern society. Many of his portraits seem intent to disturb, piercing the body with threads, tacks or nails. They also reference some of the often hidden elements of the female body: blood and fluids. Most of the photographs contain powerful imagery and are suggestive or even disturbing. His trademark is the feeling of uneasiness that the observer feels. Do these images make you feel uneasy? If so, why? Is it a reflection of your own view of the female body? I want you to be comfortable looking at a different perspective and consider if this is relevant to your own perceptions of the female form. To see his full published works go to his flickr.
