Self Hate

"Those highly retouched images, where everything is glossed out to make the person look perfect, look both unrealistic and old fashioned now" Joanne Coles. I found this quote when I was tearing fashion magazines to shreds for this project. It was ironic to find such a quote that truly encompassed the state of the female image in modern society today. Women today are bombarded with manufactured images that tell them that what they look like naturally is not good enough. This message causes many women to have low self esteem, depression, stress and many other harmful mental side effects that leads to the woman hating herself solely based on her appearance. In this piece, I wanted to capture those feeling and emotions of hating oneself while also using the images and scraps of magazines to shed a light on one of the many causes.
