We are victims of this folly



Hong Kong 2013




EyeEm filters


david & goliath (aka we are victims of this folly) AMPt_community black and white EyeEm Best Shots #procamera #snapseed #iphone #photography #eyeem /// often I find when I don't post shots immediately and allow them to sit for a while, the subtle messages that I unconsciously capture are not apparent until I've made a decision whether to post an image or not. I have looked at this image in my photo album for days and it occurred to me that it reflects how I feel about the way fashion and beauty is marketed to women. There is no single woman who is untouched by advertising and marketing; more of us have issues with weight, self esteem etc because of advertising and the pursuit of one society has deemed to be the 'ideal'. Even after decades of Oprah, it is still a struggle. There are some mothers who do a disservice to their daughters, and their are those, like me, who strive to implant in my child's mind individuality and the idea that the notion of "perfection" does not exist.
