Sick Obsession p.2 by pebblesdork Sick Obsession p.2 by pebblesdork
This is aimed towards anorexia, bulimia, or to anyone obsessed with their physical appearance.
I realize that the photo is dark, and you cannot see the models face. Some of you caught on to the purpose for this right away, but for those of you who didn't:
The purpose for this is to send the message of starvation, and to speak to a group of people-not just the model. This photo was not intended to show off her eating dissorder, it if for others to see themselves through her. Hope that makes sense n_n'

This is... amazing. for me, it's her spine that catches my attention (after the fact she's in the fetal position). This is amazing and sends a powerful message. I love it. FAV :D

There is no doubt in my mind of what message you are trying to convey. The fact that it is so dark, you can't see the model face (loss of identity), the tape measure and that she is alone are all very powerful aspects.

You see, I was trying to speak to a wide group of people, not just point out one person's disorder. Therefore I kept her face out of the shot, and kept her anonymous-for the most part haha.
I'm glad you like it n_n

Yeah I really do, the pose really captures the aspect of self-hatred and the way she's hiding from the camera screams "don't look at me!"

:iconpebblesdork:
pebblesdork Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
hehehe n_n
It wasn't so hard to get her into that "Don't look at me!" pose once I made her get rid of her bra. She was like "I feel so exposed DDDx"
I took a bunch of great shots, but I left my memory stick at her house >_<
