Final Major Project

Society has always been obsessed with body image and this continues to be an on-going issue. The media highlight and praise slim perfect figures despite that, the majority of the pictures in the media have been Photoshop and edited. This affects so many people especially young girls, because they are going through puberty and relying on the media for insight to what is new and current, this age group also, suffer from great peer pressure to look a certain way, otherwise they will be made fun of. My website explores the reasons as to why people are dying to become the perfect size, what the audience feel that the perfect body consists of and if artists contribute to the fantasy of having the perfect body image. It is questioned as to why black women are represented in a degrading form in the media, this website explores the reason why.
