I guess this is a thing.
Images and messages are powerful. So much money has been thrown to advertising/propaganda because surrounding people with a message and image everywhere begins to seep into their minds like a poison.
It isn’t enough to claim the occupation is just.
Nor is it enough to just kick them out of Palestine.
Now it must be said that is never existed, and never will.

Kinda heartbreaking. But as I said on my Facebook: it just shows how alliances are important.

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.
Is this statue of a homeless Jesus offensive?
"Everybody is special. Everybody. Everybody is a hero, a lover, a fool, a villain. Everybody. Everybody has their story to tell." - V
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
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.
