The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

These photos are from my final project for Digital Photo 1 where we used research from a fiction book to inspire our photos. I chose Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, which deals with depression throughout high school among other things. The drawings over the faces represent how detached you can be when in a depression even though you may be surrounded by love. The legs dangling show how you can be around friends and family and not know who is really suffering depression.

Barbie has often been used as a model for the “perfect woman”. In this series, I use the symbolism of Barbie to show that, just like us, no one is perfect – including Barbie. Even though we may seem perfect and that we have it all together on the outside, what’s going on in the inside might be a completely different story.
