This is a series of photographs taken of the body parts of a subject to which he/she has an inferiority complex for one reason or another.
I applied cosmetic foundation powder to the print as if this make-up tool would cancel out the inferiority complex.
The objective of the project is to express the thirst for acceptance of one self by applying cosmetic foundation powder
to the body parts in which the inferiority complex exists.
Even though cosmetic foundation is generally used to cover the parts one doesn’t want others to see,
it only serves a role to gather others’ gaze to its artificiality.
