These pictures put a spin on traditional relationships (NSFW)

Yijun Liao’s new photo series ‘Experimental Relationship’ reverses the traditional roles of males and females (where the male is typically in power and authoritative while the woman is fragile and obedient). This series of photos ‘subverts the ways we view masculinity and femininity in relationships’ by seeing Liao take on the role of the dominant figure, ‘positioning her significant other in compromising poses’ that are usually inferior to her own body.

Liao says, ‘As a woman brought up in China, I used to think I could only love someone who is older and more mature than me, who can be my protector and mentor. Then I met my current boyfriend, Moro, who is five years younger than me. I felt that the whole concept of relationships changed, all the way around. I became the person who has more authority and power’.
