"Girls Falling,” a unique photography series on girls in various stages of falling over, was staged at the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles from May 18 through June 30, 2016.
Born in 1977, Isa Ho (何孟娟) employs the language of photography to bring focus to the impact of social values upon the modern lifestyle and the construction of self-identity. The upward angle of Ho's "Girls” series describes the defeatist feeling induced by confused identities and social uniformity.
The Keelung native explores the role of women in a society where traditional Confucian values are still superlative to female independence, noting that "I try to reinterpret the traditional values so they empower the modern woman.”
Her other photography series include "I am Snow White,” "I Got Super Strong Courage,” and "Peony Pavilion.” More information is available at www.isaho.info.
