Isolation Motifs is tackles the experience of womanhood in the context of frequent and necessary moments of isolation. The world is far from being a jungle anymore, but defensive mechanisms are used every day. Who are the predators? Why do they still thrive?

Maturity, relentlessness, strength – these are the qualities photographer Alex Huanfa Cheng and stylist Rumiko Koyama seek to emphasise in their story. The use of light and geometry complicates the narrative and shifts the focus from the human body, thus avoiding the corporeal essentialisation of the subject. Isolation, in this case, happens in plain sight, but is nonetheless effective.
