For the past 13 years Jo Farrell have been photographing some of the last remaining women with bound feet in China. She has interviewed all these women about their foot binding and their lives during the Cultural Revolution and the great famine in China. She has just published a new book illustrated with photos and stories from 50 of these women. The majority are between the ages of 80 and 100 years old and are from Shandong and Yunnan Provinces. These women come from peasant backgrounds and have lived incredible lives working in the fields despite their bound feet. Farrell's work looks beyond their feet and captures a piece of history for generations to come.

Please note there is a HK $20 Admission Fee
