Little Miss, Little Miss, Little Miss Can't Be Ugly
According to his website, Alain Delorme is a French photographer of a new school of artists that use “the computing tool for the ends of mutation and hybridization of bodies.” Man, I gotta get me one them computing tools! His newest series of photographs, Little Dolls, is meant to be a scathing criticism of Western (particularly American) stereotypes of female beauty. The main subjects of Delorme’s criticism seem to be young girls’ beauty pageants and Barbie. So he grabbed a bunch of little girls (well he probably didn’t just grab them off the street or anything like that. I mean, I’m pretty sure he held like auditions and stuff. Don’t go spreading any rumors now), dressed them up, painted their faces all pretty (read: creepy)-like sat them down in front of various baked goods and snapped photos of them which he then proceeded to “mutate” and “hybridize” with his fancy “computing tool”. The result is this:
Which totally reminds me of those terrifying little girls from the beauty pageant in Little Miss Sunshine, non?
