I came across this post the other day at Messy Nessy Chic. It’s about “Poses,” a project of spanish artist, Yolanda Dominguez. I think by now we all know that models don’t really look the way they appear in magazines. Photo-shopping is everywhere, blah blah blah, but she is bringing into awareness that aside from being unrealistic looking, women are also often depicted as either weak or crazy, or both.
The kids and I watched the video and had a great discussion about it.
Something tells me they’ll never again be able to look at magazines which feature this ridiculousness without noting it.
And making fun of it.
Which is a heck of a lot better than buying into it, don’t you think?
