So this is the start of my new photo series, aptly called [the antediluvian culture]. This is referring to the archaic mentality exhibited by the people in pre-modern Malaysia regarding sexism and misogyny which was felt by most women at the time. The purpose of this photo series is to challenge current societal norms by exposing the controversial and uncomfortable nature of sexism here in Malaysia. As we can see in the photograph, the model is in a timid position, signifying vulnerability, fragility and a normalized state of fear. Her head is covered to imply the depersonalization and dehumanization of her personal identity due to torment and abuse. Women back then, and in some cases now, are regarded as mere objects by vile men - property that can be exploited and used indefinitely. By emphasizing the outdatedness of this kind of mentality, we were aiming to show that misogyny should be left in the past and not brought into the 21st-century due to its disgusting nature. Leave the past behind so that we can focus on bettering the present.
