Women in Photography 2019: Lenne Chai
Women in Photography 2019 Exhibition
Wedding | Lenne Chai
In her series, Lenne Chai reimagines a traditional 80s Chinese wedding banquet, depicting a celebration that gently nudges at heteronormative constructs through a subversion of conventional tropes. Drawing inspiration from her family’s old wedding albums and her experience as a fashion photographer, Lenne melds high camp with high fashion, creating images that glow with a vintage aesthetic while hinting at possibilities for a more open and inclusive future.
