044: magazine portraits.
What do you see when you look at the model on the front cover of a fashion magazine? Yourself inside? Many people never understand how destructive it is on one’s sense of self worth to repeatedly view idealised images, especially if one perceives one’s image in the mirror to be far from that of the cover model.
These images are not the ideal, unless you let the contiual parade of such images program your mind to accept them as such. Different societies in different times have valued different things – it is nothing more than social programming.
My Sony camera is dying, and I was too tired to take enough shots to get the view I wanted without the pink lines that mar so many of the images the camera now often produces.
