CHANGING PERCEPTION

PRIVILEGE OF SWEARING

Description —

Privilege of Swearing is a visual essay on profanity.

As many of us are aware, swearing is a common practice around the world, every language has its own expletives. It is unique and can only be undestood when used by a particular society or towards a certain audience.

This publication reimagines the impression of profanity by looking into these distinct lexicons which were moulded into my life in many ways through the perception of a Chinese educated Malaysian living in Britain; along with the satisfying experience of having the freedom in swearing.

Special thanks to Wei Qian & May Kim for the photographs.
