You and the impact of Photoshop

Take a moment and watch this video. I definitely feel the pressure to be perfect and this is such a sad reality we live in!

the CITIZENS of FASHION

Fashion is an industry that produce beautiful images to sell products. From beauty to clothing,from men magazines to selling insurance, photography most of the time is trying to sell a dream, to awake a desire that finally will materialize in buying the product.

I’m ok with it and most of us I think but when imagery is crossing a line and it’s becoming fantasy that’s not anymore advertising it is a totally a misunderstanding of what actually people want and need.

Because in a society that with everyday is becoming more chaotic it is more and more difficult to stay true to yourself. A society of consumerism that is creating its ideal consumer that generally has nothing to do with the real one.

        1. That’s good to hear, I didn’t know that =) I think it’s ok to cover up pimples and stuff like that but to lenghten legs and modify body parts is something else. I think it doesn’t only affect who’s looking butg also models who think they aren’t enough :(
