Jessie Leong

Challenging Orientalism

Jessie Leong is a photographer whose photographs allows for a visual and narrative deconstruction and reconstruction in a way that illustrates the tensions inherent within them. Presented here are images that explore existing cross-cultural tensions, titled 'Challenging Orientalism.' The previously out-dated concept of 'Orientalism' has been re-presented in a new way for the viewer so the term is no longer deemed irrelevant. Instead, Orientalism has been re-claimed via photography, with each part of the image forming a contrast to each other, in order to conjure up a visually rich world that is both sensual yet forbidding. The model's direct gazes remind us that ideas on culture and fashion are ever-changing, whilst the challenge is presented at the viewer to re-consider their previous expectations of Orientalism.
