The Average Woman

The Average Woman
Photo Description:
My piece attempts to show how the "beauty myth" damages women and causes them to distort themselves to try and achieve "beauty". You can see this distortion through the exaggeration of features such as eyelashes. Emotional damage is represented through physically damaged surfaces, for example, rust has been painted underneath peeling skin. I have created a composition of models' faces to create an "ideal woman's face". The circle of words around the face represents the constant and endless expectations that others have towards women, in regard to their appearance, and the expectations that women have of themselves.
