Faulty Mirror

Faulty Mirror

Daena Title. Faulty Mirror, 2010.

Description:
Part of the "DROWN the DOLLS" series, this image was created by submerging doll (and photographer) and shooting up towards the under-side of the pool's surface.
Reflected distortions on the under-surface of the pool mirror the distorted cultural messages that bombard girls and women, here epitomized by the Barbie doll.

"Drown" Barbie and with her the voices that extol feminine beauty above all other possible female attainment.

Medium:
Photography
