Beauty Book

This design challenge involved two opposing articles on beauty by David Lance Goines and Shojii Hamada. Goines was rather materialistic in his ideal of beauty, giving precedence to power, youthfulness, and wealth. Hamada, on the other hand, stated: "True beauty exists in the realm where there is no distinction between the beautiful and the ugly."


In order to highlight both articles, I created a flip-book where the reader can read one article and flip the book to read the opposing viewpoint. The photos reflect ideas of beauty in the spontaneity of children, and the pressures of beauty that children are taught from our tainted culture.
