Zarifa Roberson is CEO and founder of i.d.e.a.l Magazine (i.d.e.a.l is an acronym for “Individuals with Disabilities Express About Life”), a magazine for Urban Young People with Disabilities. Its mission is to promote positive images of People with Disabilities in society and seeks to eliminate negative stereotypes among the disability community.
Face Off began as an exploration into beauty ideals reflected in various media publications. The basic concept was to deconstruct a variety of faces from campaigns and photoshoots, and then reconstruct them to create quite jarring and perhaps beautiful portraits.
However, while collecting images for this project what really struck me was the underwhelming amount of representations of diverse ethnicities. As you can see from the images above, I only managed to successfully create one portrait of a person who was not caucasian. This was due to the fact that in order to create these images I needed selected features that would “fit” the base portrait (in other words elements that would cover the preexisting facial features adequately) and therefore needed a range of different images to extract elements from.
After a few attempts to find appropriate images I decided that the Face Off needed to become more than just an exploration of beauty ideals, it needed to be a project that explored the extreme issue of racial diversity in the media.
I concluded that I needed to gather a more extensive catalogue of source material to really investigate this issue, and therefore decided to close the chapter on the first part of the Face Off series, record my findings thus far, and begin to collect a wider range of media publications with which to carry on this project.
The magazines that were used during Face Off - Part One were:
- Vogue - Dazed & Confused - i-D - The Face - Elle - LOVE - Nylon
what do you want to be when you grow up? if anything!
I think being apart of the BAU in the FBI or a CIA agent would be super cool but if I’m too lazy to go through Quantico then maybe a career in the film industry like screenwriting directing editing or acting or of course something to do with photography or art like working at a fashion magazine or ideally being a professional fashion photographer
As I am still decorating and settling into my new studio apartment, I am having a blast finding different home décor ideas for small spaces. I find myself spending a lot of my downtime getting decorating ideas, tips, and tricks from different blog sites, Pinterest, and even Home and Garden magazines. My ideal style that I am going for is a contemporary, minimalistic style. I love for my furniture to display clean precise lines and less cluttered space with simple handmade items. In this photo I am displaying a couple of gold plated wall pieces that I’ve hung directly by my bedroom window. I automatically fell in love with the geometrical shapes, and I couldn’t pass this up. I adore both pieces by the window because I love how they look as the sun reflects off of the gold plates. Having window sills is an added bonus for me because I love the extra “pop” decorations can bring to a small room just by adding simple jars, plants, baskets, etc. onto a window sill. Adding scented pinecones to my bathroom window sill was a must. I feel like I am killing two birds with one stone by adding simple pizzazz to my window sill, and also have my bathroom spread the glorious aroma of cinnamon from the scented pinecones. The basket holding the pinecones is of rustic gold paint, which adds character all around.
Well it is Saturday yay, and 100$ is coming my way.
