Taking it beyond.
May 23, 2010
This exploration was an expansion and continuation on the previous, paralleling beauty with collecting. It takes the ideas of collections to an extreme. It is analyzing those who take items out of their purpose to satisfy what they feel is a need (rather then a want, moving this to an unhealthy trend). From the surface it appears to be normal but when you take a closer look you find that there is something that just doesn’t belong.
These photos, as well as the last, also comment on the realm of beauty in that woman (and men) go to extreme, unnatural, ridiculous lengths to achieve what they think is an “ideal” beauty. With this being something that does not exist they continue to grab at anything that they feel will bring them closer, which in reality is just bringing them farther away. Eventually if you go to far, everything just falls to pieces.
