Photograph, Other


iWANEX Studios' portfolio features roll-over before-and-after images from their portfolio. Students will be able to see the changes that are made to photographs of celebrities to make them look "perfect". Skin blemishes, fat, body parts, wrinkles, and hair all disappear. This can be the start of a powerful (and empowering) discussion for your students.

This is a great way to show students how images are manipulated. Paring this with the writing and reflection is a great way to explore mass media and manipulation. Students are often unaware of the extent and degree of retouching modern images have. Combining this with the Beauty in Advertising exposes the powerful secrets behind today's commercial world. Great lesson!
