Girls, an ongoing photo project by Chinese photographer Luo Yan.

‘Girls’ is an ongoing photography project by Chinese photographer Luo Yan that started in 2008. Since then, she has been taken photographs of the girls around her. Through the lens of the camera, her aim is to grasp some sense of understanding of their lives.

Luo Yan says: “The images included in the ‘Girls’ series charter a period of personal development, with reflections between myself and other girls around me apparent in each shot. Whilst I was growing up, in order to relieve myself of loneliness, I tried to find a sense of comfort
through the stillness of the photographic image. These images are both private and non-private.”

The portraits expose weakness and fragility but also tenacity and determination. This duality of fragility and inner strength is a key component of the entire photo project. Below you can find a selection of photographs from the ongoing project. For more, feel free to visit Luo Yan’s website. Be careful, some of the photographs on her website include adult content.
