Landscapes, 2014 | by Anthony Samaniego
"If someone called me pretty, I’d sneer and smear more glitter on my face. I didn’t want to be just pretty — I was wild, crazy and free. I talked about sex, about drinking.

The photographic series, Big Rock Candy Mountains, named in homage to the natural beauty of the great American landscape, the perfect plastic surgery blonde is presented as a classic odalisque. In contrast to traditional pin ups, no skin nor any individual characteristics are shown, personality is marked by platinum blond hair, synthetic fabric in sweet pastel colours and large poignant breasts. She has become an object, a sculpture, a landscape, a mountain.”

I hate hearing someone say “talking about _______ makes me uncomfortable, I don’t understand/agree with it”
