PURITY, Volume I

Regular price $17.00 $0.00

PURITY, Volume I by Sharol Xiao is a fine art photography zine featuring 'handsome ladies' of Taipei. These womxn represent an expanding subset of urban counterculture that embraces the flexibility of androgynous fashion and style as a pathway to post-gender liberation in newly radicalized Taiwan. Sharol’s subjects reflect the deliberate yet lackadaisical spirit of this movement—unhurried but assuredly self-expressed. 

PURITY mag is an irregularly published visual totem that exists between zine and magazine; it combines the intimacy of the former with the gloss of the latter. Volume I will release in Fall 2020 during the artist's second presentation at Chinatown Soup, an artist-run gallery, studio, and cafe located at the border of New York's Lower East Side.

Paperback. Printed on coated matte.
