Body and Illusion: the dreamlike photography of Taiwanese artist Lin Yung Cheng

Lin Yung Cheng, also known as 3cm, is a photographer who masterfully blends surrealism with reality, creating images that challenge our perception of the human form. His work often features human figures with obscured faces, their bodies transformed through strategic placement of mirrors or the simple addition of lines drawn directly onto the skin. These techniques result in alien-like contortions and flattened, almost two-dimensional appearances that invite viewers to question the boundaries between the body and its reflection.

Cheng’s photography is not just a visual experience; it is informed by poetry and personal life experiences, making each piece a narrative of its own. His unique approach to capturing the human condition has garnered attention and acclaim, allowing his audience to explore themes of identity, existence, and the surreal aspects of the everyday.
