To the Big City

I think what I love most about this project is that it messes with the typical depiction of pin-up girls. Pin-up girls are typically presented, not as real people, but as sexualized objects with plastic smiles. This project appropriates that style, but shows that the girl under the flashy clothes, hair and makeup is a real person, who has moments of vulnerability and loneliness.
