Day 20 “challenge”: ad-busting
I had no idea what “ad-busting” meant, so I did me a lil’ internet search. I found the Tumblr Ad-Busting, which is a collection of real ads that have feminist commentary written over them. I liked the idea, but wasn’t really inspired. What appealed to me most on the blog were the “unbustable” ads: ads that didn’t use photoshop or promote harmful messages. In the spirit of ad-busting with a positive bent, I’d like to share with you the photo series “Lustworthy: A Statement for the Visible Woman.” Created by fat activist Jes Baker and photographer Liora K, it is a fake advertorial for the fictional perfume Lustworthy. I find the series inspirational; check out the rest by clicking the above link.
