Hsin Wang is a Taiwanese fine art photographer based in Brooklyn. Her work visualises her personal experiences and stories through the use of everyday objects in a metaphoric and symbolic level.

Her series De-Selfing is a minimal, elegant and provocative personal diary that stuns the viewer.

Talking about the series, the photographer explains: “I have been using my photography to create a visual representation of my feelings about romantic relationships, called De-Selfing. After a major break up, I deeply believed that if I didn’t transform myself into a more likeable woman, there would be no more happiness in my life. So I started to dispose of everything that defined the old “me”-things I did, said, and even believed. I chose to “de-self” myself in order to please potential romantic partners. Creating the images in De-Selfing has been a therapeutic process for me. Since starting the project, I have picked myself up piece by piece, gotten my confidence back, and been able to hear my own voice again.”

Beautiful.
