De-Selfing // Hsin Wang
Hsin Wang is a Taiwanese fine art photographer based in Brooklyn. Hsin is noted for using muted color palette, graphics, and manipulation of negative space. Statement from Hsin:
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 likable 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.
