Yolanda Dominguez uses her photography to comment on the ridiculous nature of fashion model poses by placing regular women in everyday situations performing popular poses.

Part social commentary, part photo-editorial and part publicity stunt, Yolanda Dominguez covers a lot of bases. One woman is laid out on the concrete beside a flower garden with her legs slightly curled and her head laying by her outstretched arm. A pedestrian is also seen bending over to aid the lady, obviously unaware of the purpose of such a pose. Seen in an everyday context, this pose looks more like she fell from a window than a pose for a photo.

Another shot shows a woman standing in a line up with an extreme hip holding pose.
