Faceless Females, Pt. 473
PERHAPS I'M BEING oversensitive to notice different media treatment of white women and brown women (and here, I mean "brown-skinned" and not just "brown" metaphorically) while walking through the women's underwear section of a store (not a usual pastime, no), and I know we've come a long way in that at least I see a lot of black/asian/latino models in the standup posters as opposed to the straight-up blonde/fair look, but this disparity struck me as odd:
The disappearing and dehumanizing act rolls on in some places. Usually a treatment reserved for women in visual representation, here it seems to fall squarely on only one type.
P.d.: Luckily, I did not get thrown out of the store for what may have come across as rather odd photography habits. These days a shutterbug is afraid to shoot with all the TERRRRRURRRR in the air you may just have some vatos show up and think you are planning some kind of bra-billboard bombing...
