The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.”

~ John Berger, Ways of Seeing

This is Amerikkka 2014
ICONIC


#This is such an important picture #This is the flower in the rifle barrel #I want this picture in textbooks and graffiti’d on buildings #ferguson #I want this picture to be talked about whenever people try to say ‘The people started it!’ #A bag of chips in one hand and a can of tear gas in the other #If you think that this is ‘they started it’ then you can go fuck yourself (via)


Always a reblog.
