Screw this size zero culture! by 

Canon 450D
F-stop: 3.5 (-0.3 exposure bias)
Exposure time: 1/30 sec.
ISO-speed: 200
Focal length: 18mm

Desaturated, then contrastified, then added lots of noize. It’s difficult to work with images that aren’t good quality in the first place.. Experimenting with B&W and noise.
Self-portrait, because I DON’T LIKE THIS SIZE ZERO RUBBISH. Too much pressure on young girls to put their bodies through too much! It should stooooop!!

Rant over. Back to the image, you likey?

    LOVE IT!!! The black and white is amazing and I like the “noize” it adds intensity to what you are trying to say….and of course I love the message. So well conveyed. :D

    I agree with your message! What the media does to young girls and their self image is horrible and I’m guy and think that. I wanna see a cool shot of a girl measuring her waist and cutting it with scissors, only shot with your tragemarked intensity.

  • Ahh! That’s such an awesome idea!! I might do that, if you don’t mind me stealing the idea. I promise to credit you. :D

    Lovely photo! Rock on with your bad self, Lolli – i think we should create a group here dedicated to this concept…we could start with a couple of our images and go from there…

  • I’m up for it!

    Well, i do have to say that some of us are naturally “stick insects”, and that’s totally fine. It’s natural, it’s metabolism. I’ve had other women say nasty things about my body being “anorexic”, which i’m not. I think women (and men) need to accept their bodies as they are, skinny or zaftig.

  • Yeah, I totally agree with you! It goes beyond weight too, people are pressured into wearing their hair a certain way, or even acting a certain way! In this day and age, we should be learning to accept ourselves, and not only ourselves but other people!

    I think you two are on to a winner! Its not just young girls either. Men and women are pressured into ‘building’ up their self image to adeer to what the media enforce as a ‘stereotypical’ way of life. People should be happy with the way they are; big, skinny, built or whatever…

    That said – Great image!!! Let me know what happens with this group…
