Extreme Dolce & Gabanna photo shop exposed
Took two days to turn into this:
The contrast is striking, highlighting once again how common is the false portray of cultural icons. It’s almost shocking to see the untouched image, so familiar have we become with the extreme doctored versions; with the fantasy sold to us by the celebrity/beauty/fashion industries.
Even if many women know that the images they see daily have been heavily photo-shopped, the message these false reflections broadcast is: this is how you should look. The very act of photo-shopping Madonna so dramatically tells us Madonna is not OK: even she needs correction.
The re-created image tells us something else, and that is that the ageing process is unacceptable. How is Madonna supposed to accept the realities of being an older woman, when those who are using her won’t?
This is what I had to say about it on Channel 7’s Morning Show this week.
