Favianna Rodriguez is a celebrated printmaker and digital artist based in Oakland, California. Using high-contrast colors and vivid figures, her composites reflect literal and imaginative migration, global community, and interdependence. Whether her subjects are immigrant day laborers in the U.S., mothers of disappeared women in Juárez, Mexico, or her own abstract self portraits, Rodriguez brings new audiences into the art world by refocusing the cultural lens. Through her work we witness the changing U.S. metropolis and a new diaspora in the arts.

This looks like a scene from CSI, not a fashion shoot (except for the ridiculous outfit). Why would Louis Vuitton want to display their products on a girl who looks like she’s been assaulted and then discarded in the woods? Perhaps they believe that images like this are sexy, or make their products look desirable. To me, it resembles an act of violence towards women, and sadly that is not uncommon in advertising today.

YOUR SKIN IS IN DANGER OF GETTING OLDER AND YOU NEED TO SAVE IT IMMEDIATELY! Your skin is “undernourished” so quick - feed it this fancy moisturizer and you just might be able to save it.

I like these things being pointed out.Language is used as a weapon in advertisement. It isn’t “will make you look better”, no thats not strong enough. This is literally saying without their product you’re skin is going to just die, leave, disappear.

    You are not guilty or responsible for whatever actions your ancestors did.

    You are not guilty or responsible for whatever actions your ancestors did.

    You are not guilty or responsible for whatever actions your ancestors did.

    You are not your ancestor.

    You are not the past , you are the future.

    You are responsible for being the change, for making a change.

    You are not your ancestors, but if you do not do anything to change things then you are giving your approval of what they did.
