dc.description.abstract            The Point Five Project is a collection of uniform visual and written works that represent a commentary on beauty in today’s media. The series consists of photographs of women with one half of their face natural, without makeup, and the other half of their face made up heavily and Photoshopped. The photographs include a personal statement from the women about how today’s media world and makeup have affected them. This Project is a photographic series that reflects the expanding conversation about how the increasing numbers of media platforms in the world are impacting people on a social and psychological level.            As the digital realm continues to adapt and grow, the transformational capabilities of today’s media have reached unprecedented levels. Not only can people’s bodies, faces, and features be completely altered, but also the mass nature of the Internet has increased the number of impressions those images can have on the public. The Point Five Project is intended to draw attention to the more serious effects of the media and digital manipulations on the way people perceive themselves, others, and the world.
