The Eroticised Image of the Chinese Female Body in 21st Century Private Photography in China

The PhD research will discuss the premise of Chinese contemporary private photography within the art historical canon and examines the image-making and de-privatisation of Chinese female bodies, encouraging discourse around their private parts.

This research seeks to contend that private photographers in their antithetical approach of the gaze, of the eroticised Chinese female body, are influenced by Duchampian methods to form the framework behind Chinese private photography movement. This research seeks to explore new methodological approaches such as participatory and collaborative approaches toward the eroticised female body and contribute new scholarship on Chinese private photography in contemporary photography history.
