a beautiful marriage

I grew up watching my traditional Chinese parents show little to no affection or passion in their marriage. Instead, they poured their time and efforts into the growth and success of my brother and me. There is something romantic and touching about their marriage that resembles a business agreement. I decided to recreate my mother’s wedding portrait. I chose chicken wire fence to cover the umbrella to represent captivity as her veil. A piece of fabric as her wedding dress, for it was just a simple occasion. The sacrifices our parents have done for us started from the day they were married. It was the day they chose to selflessly start a new family, and a new beginning. A ceremony for slaves who loyally nurture and love their children. They put themselves, their own dreams, and their own love and passions on hold. The day of their marriage was a celebration of their commitment and satisfaction of raising their children.
