Body image and how people perceive themselves is thought-provoking. It is important to initiate conversations about how the media forges romanticized expectations about bodies and self-worth. I purposefully used a Barbie because of her history of being the “perfect woman” to children. I also incorporate a mirror to show the fake self-security that even the ideal human has. My photo challenges and inspires people to question identity and social norms. It encourages the viewer to reflect on the way they were taught to think about themselves and to question beauty and lifestyle brands. Often, we don’t second guess these subliminal messages.
