Caroline V. Corbitt is an intended Graphic Design major and Photography minor at the University of Georgia. She did a series, with the help of her close friend Ashlyn Davis, titled Milk Eggs Flour for one of her photo classes. Her series depicts herself being covered with the three ingredients milk, eggs and flour, to portray the falsity of feminine ideals.
The idea behind her piece has to do with the fact that women believe they have to be perfect all the time.
“Women are under so much pressure to be better than other women,” she says,” It’s crazy how much we rely on our looks and makeup to feel beautiful.”
She covered herself in these key ingredients to show that you can feel beautiful no matter how you look.
“It’s really about how you feel,” she explains,”I feel the most beautiful when I’ve just taken a shower and am bundled up watching T.V., just clean.”
“That’s not how many girls want boys to see them however, and that’s just crazy to me!”
“I felt beautiful when being photographed covered in goo and all women should feel beautiful, even if there is egg on their face.”
“Women should be able to be their whole selves and feel good. We put all kinds of junk on our faces to be ‘beautiful’, and when it comes down to it, it’s really just junk that clogs your pours!”
