My work looks to break consensus and reshape outmoded notions of masculinity through performative photographic series. My photographs juxtapose a tension between expected modes of behavior as a Chinese man, together with rebellious or provocative counter behaviours. In this way I am subverting the familial and societal expectations by creating a contemporary response to them. I perform scenarios that fulfill a sense of masculinity using self-portraits in intimate surroundings. I look to raise awareness of the misconceptions of the queer experience that still create a barrier between generations, by sharing my own experiences in a confrontation with these stereotypes. Breaking these down into poignant and absurd photographic scenarios is a way of dealing with perceptions of homosexuality, masculinity and feminity, which is at the heart of my narratives.
