In today's visual culture, photography along with many other mediums has encouraged us to confine our idea of beauty into an industry prototype. It has become less about our own conscious decisions but more about the configuration and formation of structured guidelines that are presented to us daily through mass media. 'To Me' is an ongoing project that challenges the idea of beauty that has manifested itself deep into our understanding. From the perspective of female teenagers, this project explores areas of femininity, identity and most importantly beauty. ''To me, beauty can be exposed in the characteristics of a person: personality, flaws, desires and aspirations.'' Dara, 17. More images and quotes can be found on my website.
