MONSTROUS FEMININE

The photos are similar to Ben Hopper’s photos in the way they are going against modern beauty standards. Australian-based photographer Jessica Ledwich wants to show the extent that we are putting our bodies through and to hopefully change these extremely high beauty standards through her series of images called, “Monstrous Feminine”.

I found the pictures extremely shocking but also very thought provoking and very cleverly done. All images retrieved from Google.

The images definitely make you think about what impact you are having on your body in this attempt to achieve this beautiful body image. The way that the pictures have framed just body parts emphasises this idea of body mutilation and suggests that every single body part is preened to perfection.
