When did our obsession with photoshop go from feminist to damaging?


Most women wish that fashion magazines and websites did not Photoshop their models. It creates an unrealistic beauty standard, which is harmful and ridiculous. Unfortunately, while some publications may decide to cut down on the amount of retouching they give their photographs, it seems unlikely that Photoshopping will ever truly go out of style.

The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer Is Not A Pink Ribbon

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.

Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.
