First Picture: Amor A La Oaxaqueña
Indigenous Oaxacan women burning the European beauty standards barbies represent. As a kid she was taught to honor the blonde barbie, with the perfect body, and perfect features. #WEALLDONTLOOKLIKETHAT
Second Picture: Flaming HOT body
Dismantling body standards and self love.
Third Picture: NOT YOUR DYKE
There are gender expectations that women should have long hair and women who have short hair are always suspected to be "lesbians, or dykes". STOP ASSIGNING GENDER TO HAIR. ITS JUST HAIR.
ALL CREDITS TO MY FLORES POLITICOS PROJECT BY ME ZULY DE LA ROSE
Zuly Garcia's project brings sociology and women studies into photography to talk about the politics of women-hood . It expresses self love for all women who do not represent the stereotypical European beauty standards that society pressures us into. Growing up we have barbies telling us what we should look like and we lack representation of women with different cultures/ identities/ disabilities/body types/ etc. photography is symbolic. Garcias project dismantles gender expectations/ body shaming/ gender policing/ in this socially constructed society. And we do it like no other, by including our own personal details, flowers, and culture.
