Chinese photographer Jun C elevates humble safety pins into surprisingly expressive anthropomorphic subjects for an ongoing series of photos entitled Brooch. Some appear to sit alone on a chair or at a desk, while others spend time with loved ones.
The pins are carefully bent and positioned in scenes that are wholly familiar to us humans - so much so that the viewer immediately identifies with the little metal subjects on an emotional level. In Jun C’s world, the life of a safety pin has its ups and downs just as it does for any of us.
