The past and the future are inextricably connected, and photographer Joseph Chen challenges and expands upon that connection in ‘The Future of Beauty.’ Partially inspired by the Björk exhibit at MOMA, Chen was affected by the way she incorporates futuristic, historical, and natural references into her work. With this in mind, he created a world where the past and future coexist, and where beauty rules.
