More about this item:

French for "shame," "Honte" is one of the photographs inspired by the song, “Les Regrets” by French singer Alain Souchon.

These are Monique Lai’s works inspired upon her arrival in Hong Kong that feature actress Eugenia Yuan.  Monique reveals that: “This photography series is my most personal work.  For this collection I wanted to inspire courage.  I wanted to showcase a person at their lowest point, rising and being stronger than ever … the underlying subtext here is about survival.”
