Social Pressures and The myth of Beauty.
My still life will be based on the myth of beauty, how images of beauty can be used against us and the social pressure to look good.
I will look into topics like image manipulation, Retouching and 'Airbrushing'. I will investigate how this can change our idea of beauty and how we feel we should look.
I plan to use manipulation within my images for my still life,for example i could use natural objects like flowers or fruit and manipulate them to signify how we change ourselves to fit a certain look, i will look into symbolism also.
