Photographer Hannah Altman published a fascinating series of photographs on her tumblr http://hannahaltmanphoto.tumblr.com/ a few months ago, entitled “And Everything Nice.”
Altman includes a brief explanation of the series:
“‘And Everything Nice’ is an unflinching analysis of the standard for female beauty. The ongoing series consists of women in states of affliction; the body fluid of the models have been replaced with glitter to visualize the concept of girls invariably needing to seem attractive regardless of the actual situation” - Altman via her Tumblr post
I love this series because it’s very powerful in showing how girls are expected to be “attractive” all the time, as Altman claims above. I like how she replaced the blood and vomit and tears with glitter, which made the statement very poignant. I’ve seen this series floating around Tumblr for a while, and maybe you have too? Feel free to comment with your interpretations and thoughts.
Check out her Tumblr for more of her photography if you’re interested.
