The main idea for this project is to document and portray how women are sexualised and objectified in the media, incorporated with street photography. One effect of how women are portrayed is that is gives women unrealistic notions of what they should and shouldn’t look like. After the media instills insecurity and anxiety into women, they imply that buying various products available will correct all of their ‘imperfections’. These images not only reinforce gender stereotypes but more often than not, they contribute to violence against women. The beauty industry is a million dollar industry and makes the money from exploiting women. All photos were shot in Oxford Street, London.
