Posed Parody Portraits
Dominguez excitedly captures the reactions of perplexed spectators, are baffled by the strange street poses, yet do not question them on the pages of a magazine. It is a wonder whether the reactions would change if the posing subjects were high fashion models and not every day women. The performance shoot is a direct criticism of the artificially glamorous world fashion magazines presents, which often incites envy and self-hatred in their readers.
Implications - The artificial and overly edited images in fashion magazines and on film expose consumers to a distorted reality about beauty and body image. This distortion is not lost on many artists, who hope to inspire closed-minded consumers to open their eyes to the realities of this world and the unattainability of these standards through their art.
