Eaton HK is delighted to present solo exhibition A Body of Work by Hong Kong-based photographer Stephanie Teng in Eaton House, 4/F.
A Body of Work was born out of a frustration at the lack of diverse representation of body shapes in mainstream media. As an Asian woman growing up in a relatively homogenous and hyper weight conscious city like Hong Kong, normalcy always came in sizes too small. Through exploring the photographic process as a form of therapy and empowerment, Stephanie Teng began studying the psychological impacts of body image starting with her own experience. The goal of the project is to dismantle the oppression and discomfort of the ideal corporeal form through storytelling and collective healing.
