For the photographer Luo Yang from China, femininity is a very diverse concept. Stereotypes and standardization, which are traditional for Chinese culture, also relate to the image of a girl. The photographer gets rid of these ideas in a series of pictures depicting free, bold and even aggressive Chinese women. They are unlike the modest and chaste ideal of an Asian woman, but full of inner strength and sensuality.
