Meet Jo Farrell, a documentary photographer and cultural anthropologist capturing traditions and cultures before they are completely eradicated. Her work focuses on to what lengths women will go to be accepted in their own society—from Chinese footbinding to the Kayan women with brass coils round their necks. BOUND has been Farrell’s ongoing project for the last 13 years and during this time Farrell has met and photographed more than 50 women with bound feet in China.

Discover the behind the scenes stories of her book “Living History: Bound Feet Women of China”, which documents and celebrates the lives of the last remaining women in China with bound feet.
