0 1192

Women have long suffered for beauty, but this, is way beyond our imagination. This tradition of women bound their feet was originated in ancient China, there was a time in China history when people consider small feet of women as beautiful, they called it the “three-inch golden Lotuese”.

Though this inhuman foot-binding thing was officially banned in 1912. But still, women who suffered from this painful tradition are still alive today.

Photographer Jo Farrell took these photographs and interviewed some of the last living Chinese women with bound feet to document those she refers to as “almost the forgotten women”.

Let’s see some of her works.
