Pushing the Limits

Victorias SecretVictim of Beauty

We have all heard expressions such as ‘pain is beauty’.  The two images above bring about very different ideas on beauty.  In the first image, we see a Victoria’s Secret model who is very attractive and fit.  Many would look at this woman as something that they would strive to look like.  Physical perfection.  How far would you go to achieve this perfection that is plastered all over the magazines and media?  With liposuction and plastic surgery available now at every turn, we have the option to transform into something other than what we were born with. Now look at the second image.  The title of this image is ‘Victim of Beauty’.  It calls to mind the question of how far you are willing to go to obtain what some may consider beauty.  If you look deeper, you can see that there are underlying messages on a stance against abuse – both emotional and physical.
