The way women are depicted in ads and fashion magazines has been a hot topic lately. Nudity has been used to sell products for ages, and this trend lives on. It also often causes a lot of attention (just remember the “Hadid sisters” case). Former fashion photographer Jennifer Moss has analyzed fashion magazines over the years. Aside from depicting women as sexual objects, Moss found a few other common poses that seem disturbing. But she argues that the most alarming one is depicting women as corpses.
Photojournalist Maya Vidon-White is facing criminal charges over her photo of a man who was killed during the November terror attacks in Paris after the man’s family filed charges against the Paris based photographer.
Stating that the publication of the image caused the family emotional damage, press freedom advocates argue that Vidon-White has been wrongfully targeted using an “obscure” French law.
