Millions of young women compare themselves against images in the media, and many feel they don’t measure up to some artificial, idealized standard of beauty. If I had a daughter, I’d want her to see this video of a magazine photo shoot and the subsequent work done by the retouching artist in Photoshop. The media is all about image, but the video also demonstrates image crafting which is fakery that creates a false reality. In this case it takes an otherwise ordinary woman and turns her into something of a freak. There was a real woman who is the basis of this image, but the image you see is not of any real person, it could never be. It is pure fantasy in the hands of an artist. If there is anything that young women and girls can learn from this model, it’s to be comfortable with yourself as you are.
The video was found on YouTube.
