An image of a girl holding up a photo of the face of a Barbie doll. I love this piece as it implies that society and the media portray an image of 'the perfect and beautiful woman' and its all girls ever want to be and such importance is put upon it, however the perfect woman isn't real, it is only plastic or models have been photo-shopped etc.
Glum facial expressions are a big part of the indie genre. Most images, like this one, have moody faces which add to the alternative feel of the image. I would like to take and use a picture like this on my magazine pages as a lot of focus is on the model and her expressions. This is a perfect example of something I would expect to see in an indie magazine
I never buy fashion or women's magazines because it promotes this kind of shackling of women. We are not what we wear or put on our faces or into our stomachs. Why do we do this to ourselves, to our self-image and confidence, and self-esteem? Rise above.
