Safe Milk

Safe Milk, 150×300cm, 2009

In February 2009, I was invited by a French magazine to France to shoot some photo works. At that time, I decided to make another work for myself, “Safe Milk”. In an old castle in France, I invited western fashion models to work with me in staging a newer version of the “Last Supper”. Around 2008-2009, there was a nation-wide consumer scandal in China, involving tainted infant formula, milk and milk powder, contaminated with melamine, endangering the health of infants and small children. So I made this photograph. On a large table about 9 meters long, I placed yoghurt, and milk, asking models to bear their breasts. It was such a valuable experience that an American pregnant women volunteered to work with me on this photograph before giving birth a few days later.
