A first look at the photographers to know at Unseen Amsterdam
In anticipation of the photography festival’s return next month, we round up our favourite picks from the 2019 programme.
Alternative narratives are a running theme at this year’s festival, and XING is no different. Founded by Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, XING is an online collective seeking to represent the lives of East and Southeast Asian women today. Lee established XING in order to combat societal misconceptions surrounding Asian women, specifically looking to challenge notions of fetisiation. The photography is striking—a blend of humour, eroticism and care. As XING say themselves, “We champion the vagabonds, challenge hegemony, and celebrate a oneness through imagery and prose.”
