The images above are collages which I created from text and images taken from Reader’s Digest books from the fifties and sixties, and magazines marketed for women (Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Seventeen, etc.).

The collages address these concepts with a certain degree of humor and sarcasm, which functions as a means to draw viewers in.
