Illusions of the body

25 jan

De kommende billeder er taget af taget af den kvindelige fotograf Gracia Hagen, som er bosat i Chigaco.
Hun har taget en billedeserie, som skal vise, hvordan et billede kan blive ændret dramatisk blot ved at ændre nogle simple ting. Hun siger hertil om serien:

”  This series was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.

  Imagery in the media is an illusion built upon lighting, angles & photoshop. People can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances & two seconds later transform into something completely different. “
