Abreast Of The Issue

Abreast Of The Issue, a photo by Paris Set Me Free on Flickr.

BONUS: For Street Photography Fans!


There are two versions of this photo on my Flickr feed: the one you see here with her beautiful lips and nose just showing, and the other with them completely whited out.

The latter is an altogether lighter affair, but I decided to go with the one you see above. I didn't want to dehumanise the lady totally.

Although of course the original photographer was basically saying: this girl's breasts, as in 'This girl is / has breasts', and let's hope it'll sell us a few more murky mags. Even if it is Vogue. They're all the same.

The weirdest thing is that women on the front covers sell mags to women as much as they do to men. This is worrying. The message seems to be: women, this is the woman you have to be; men, this is the woman you have to see. Otherwise forget it. Like some huge industrial conspiracy.

It would be interesting to know how many Vogue magazines this crashing cleavage sold. Isn't there something bizarre going on here? Here here. Anyway...

And why not...
