Photography by Pokchat Worasub, Text by ANNA Agency
Her – It began with my late cat, Coco who passed through this world to the world of her own.
Her – Whose voices are not represented in a society obsessed with perfection.
Her – Who embraces her flaws regardless of beauty standards imprinted in her upbringing.
Her – She accepts her individuality and does not conform to societal expectations.
Her – The notion of beauty expressed through her story, her fluid body and her vulnerability.
Her – The women I photograph who embodies her natural beauty in her most raw and genuine form.
“Her” in Thai translates to “เธอ/ter” which is a common pronoun used to refer to someone with affection; usually in the way a group of female friends refer to one another, a teacher to a student, or in most cases a man to a woman.
n "HEREFORHER", Pokchat Worasub explores the strength of the female soul that exists within the delicate female body. The series of photographs, taken without intention to capture intrinsic and authentic interactions between the model and herself, the photographer.
"HEREFORHER" is Worasub’s platform of creative expression that represents, inspires and empowers the new generation of women yet to be represented by Thai media. The pieces of her models are depicted from the perspective of beauty seen through Worasub’s lenses, embracing weaknesses, insecurities and truth that are constituent to each distinct identity.
