「Raised by wolves」

In AW23, Louis Shengtao Chen depicts the subtle journey of a maturing youth, faced with expectations and norms, blurring the oddities of fantasy with reality. The title derives from photographer Jim Goldberg’s multi-media documentarian project “Raised by Wolves” (1995). In a study of identity, Louis tangos between contrasts of naivety and maturity, explores the playful balance of age-inappropriate dressing, and a play between sophistication and rebellion.
