21 Jul The Next Phase of Beauty Pageant Photography?
JUAN SAYS: This set of pictures send us back down to memory lane when beauty pageants were called Carnival Queens and women picked to be part of it were amongst the upper echelon of the society. We are not exactly fans of beauty pageants, but we aren’t haters either. While we are proud that beauty pageants have evolved into being inclusive of all the pretty ladies in the different parts of the archipelago, we can’t help but cringe at their photos in skimpy bikinis, videos of them parading like meat to the widening eyes of its “consumers.” We really think that beauty is beyond all that. This set of photos is refreshing. We like how they purposely skewed away from the normal route of objectifying women. Finally, somebody did something right, even in photographs. Because we all know that women, and yes, even men, are more than just the thin waist, the big boobs and butt that others put out to win your hearts.
