THE HISTORY OF UGLINESS

After reading Gretchen E Hendersons' article on Aeon regarding the history of ugliness and whether there's such a thing , I began thinking about what makes someone beautiful or ugly. I believe beauty and ugliness are all constructs from society and media outlets, which we as humans naturally absorb and become desensitized to. In this project I looked in to societies constructs of beauty and ugliness and challenged this through the depiction of super models, which we often see in advertisements and glossy magazines. In this project I aim to show one mans beauty is another mans ugly.
