wouldn’t it be funny if in like fifty years someone made a movie about leonardi dicaprio and the actor that played him won an oscar
I wish I cold do this with my dog but we would just end up fighting!!!
Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public
“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.
The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”

Thought this was actually really cool and I’d share it with you guys! Takes a lot to get up there and do something like this. Love it!
this is such a fucking important project to me because i am constantly stared at in public in a negative way and turned into some disgusting object for the amusement of others and this is a peaceful way to confront those people
turning the spectators into the spectacle
why are people so shitty
hmmm manipulating the spectator… plenty of people will simply look at these people and think, they are judging her because she is overweight. They very well might be… but they could also just be looking at her because she standing alone with (I’m assuming) a tripod and also blocking a lot of peoples ways in busy traffic. That would make plenty of people frown. They could also be trying to figure out who she is. Those girls could be laughing at jokes their friends tell them.
It’s very clever, but also unfair for the possible innocent bystander.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ what she said.

“There are lots of actors out there who are hugely, hugely talented and haven’t gotten the breaks I’ve had.”

Dove hired a forensic artist to draw how women see themselves versus how others see them.
Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.
