Kelsey Twist Schroeder Roland Park Country School
Everywhere, everywhere, children are the scorned people of the earth. -Toni Morrison
There is really nothing more to say- except why. But since why is difficult to handle, one must take refuge in how.
It was as though some mysterious all-knowing master has said, You are ugly people. They had looked about themselves and saw nothing to contradict the statement; saw, in fact, support for it leaning at them from every billboard, every movie, every glance. Yes, they had said. You are right.
Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to another physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought.
What does the master say to you? What do you learn about the world from the movies and other elements on popular culture? How do these messages shape your choices and your sense of self? 2012
1. What do you see? A formal visual analysis. 2. What do you think the intended message of this image is? 3. How do you think people feel when they see the image? 4. What do you think the motivation was of the person or people who created the image?
What does beauty look like to you? What does a healthy romantic relationship look like to you?
