I encourage you to take a step back. Ignore all the noise around and see the world through a child’s eyes. For the next five minutes, Barbie is just a toy. Her life is pink and glittery—nothing else. Her next adventure is at your fingertips. She may be plastic, but she comes alive in the stories created through play. I created “Recalling a Pink Flashback,” to emphasize the fact that we as humans get caught up on issues that just shouldn’t be there, and because of social media, the issues become more glaringly apparent. Some individuals may focus too much on their insecurities brought on by a preconceived idea of “perfection” that is exposed in mainstream media. However, I want my viewers to feel happy when they see this image. I want the viewer to feel like a child again and I hope that this photo brings back positive memories for those who played with Barbies as a child.
