Hung Sheng Lee

Department: Man and Identity


What: A series of videos revealing the naked beauty of man’s feet.

Why: Society celebrates female beauty. Sensuality and elegance are associated with feminine forms. However, male nudity is slowly becoming more visible and present, perhaps as an expression of gender equality. A handsome face, a ripped torso, yes. But what about the rest? Male feet are sensuous too, believes Hung-Sheng Lee. And he set out to convey their beauty.

How: Hung-Sheng Lee uses video to enhance sensuality. Tactile materials interact with the skin of the feet, allowing the eye to discover every detail of male heels and toes. Wrapped in soft liquid jelly, the male foot softens. Exploring beauty and sensation in a variety of shots, the video is a celebration of male feet.

“I want to extend the fetishist fascination for high-heeled female feet to their male counterparts”
