Deadline Reminder – Elizabeth Heppenstall’s Fashion Face – Now!


Beth is doing a project that you can participate in from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a camera or webcam and attitude. Gooooorgeouusss!

Hey everyone, I’m doing a project for my alternative media class and need some help. The assignment is to do a subversive fashion project and mine will include as many pictures as possible of people making a “model face”.

I’m trying to include lots of photos of people from outside the normal (skinny, symmetrical, young) model category. I’ve been going up to people and asking them to pose and, though they tend to feel silly, they usually say yes.

I’ve gotten a lot of great pictures so far but for my project to work the way I want I’ll need a lot more. So, if you could send me a picture of you, and anyone else willing, giving the camera that silly “I’m bored, I’m hot, and you love it” face that would be great!

This does not have to be done with a great camera, you can do it with your web cam or camera phone or anything.You don’t need to touch them up at all either, this is about real people, pores and all. It doesn’t have to be exactly like the demo pictures either – you know what is meant by “model face”. The finished product will be published online and possibly in an installation.

Thanks gorgeouses!
