Ideas and inspiration for the photo shoot for my article (models, mannequins and body image):

 

Giuseppe Mastromatteo Part of the ‘Indepensense’ 2009

Giuseppe Mastromatteo Giuseppe Mastromatteo 2

This is a really clever and interesting surreal style of photography. It’s inspired me with ideas for the photos in my magazine article… I could have women holding up images of the ‘ideal’ body or a mannequin’s torso and ripping it to show rebellion against the media’s perception of the perfect figure.

Disguise by Ilse Noordhof

Again here’s someone holding up images over and inline with her face. I quite like the idea of the photo being held up being in black and white and the actual photo being in colour to create contrast. Also this could work conceptually, as the idea of holding up an image of what you’d rather look like is quite negative, as it’s showing people not being happy with their own body/appearance.

JOHN STEZAKER surrealist collage

Presenting a distorted person split down the middle into two faces. Could be used to represent before and after photoshop. Showing the same person but how they look naturally and how they look after altering their face, whether digitally or in real life. Interesting angle too, inline with surreal theme and kind of geometric. It’s also showing some of face, rather than covering all, showing contrast.

Mannequin by Brian Bowen Smith Contemporary Artist

This image is of two different bodies, could be hiding your own body behind the body you want, but physically/literally rather than with just a photo.

Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer – Thought-Provoking Photos of Fashion Ads Superimposed Over Real Bodies

Another example of a photo covering the face, but this time the scale doesn’t fit the actual head, but perhaps this adds to the distortion and could be considered in my photos.

I quite like the idea here of images being held over the persons body by other people and almost tugging at the skin, as if to say they are telling him what’s wrong or right about his body and he feels he’s being told how to look to conform and meet up with societies standards…

The forced perspective works well in this image, just another example of a photography covering the face/body. Perhaps could be more interesting using black and white photo? Something to try…
