Painful And Disturbing Pictures Of Womanhood Issues By Yung Cheng Lin
3CM is the artistic name of Yung Cheng Lin, a very creative photographer from Taiwan. The photographer explores the different issues of womanhood: menstruation, birth, sexuality, maturity… And also the social conventions usually associated to the fair sex.
The approach of 3CM knows no taboos, and he isn’t afraid of creating gross but artistic compositions using simple colors and everyday objects, from yarn to pins. His trademark is the feeling of uneasiness that the observer feels. All the pictures look too real for comfort: they imply a great deal of pain. At his Facebook page, 3cm says, “There is no explanation for my images because I want there to be various, different interpretations, and I would like to see what those are.”
Nonetheless, the aim of the artist is not just to be rebellious and shock the audience. Beyond the disturbing, surreal image, there is something to make you stop and think.
