‘Picture Me’


General Culture

This article about Sara Ziff and her documentary about the modelling industry (‘Picture Me’) is currently making the rounds, and it’s a must-read (I found this via Colin’s blog).

Before we get into outrage mode, though, I think we need to be honest: Is anybody seriously surprised about this? After seeing years and years of posters and ads and features on fashion photography/shows - many of them filled with models who are clearly much younger than 18?

We clearly need to debate the modelling industry, but let’s not pretend we had no idea.
