Humble Revelations

This is a place for my thoughts, dreams, confessions, and other ramblings that end up stuck in my head.

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularlyhow do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice

Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.

I love the fact that I’m the go to photographer for this band. I get to listen to great music, and I get to practice photography (which I know is getting better).

The first time I photographed this band, I ended up taking over 700 shots. I only managed to give them a little over 40 images though. This time around, I took a little over 600 shots, and they are getting around 60 shots.

Anyway, this is the band Silver Century!

ok

Why? Why would she think this was EVER a good idea?! Maybe I’m just being a bitch, but she kind of deserves whatever is coming to her.

Spring is in full force here in Washington. It is driving me absolutely crazy, what with my allergies and all. Though, there are a couple of shots of the flowers in bloom.

Menstruation: What is the evolutionary or biological purpose of having periods?
