Your say… Your views, news and problems Star letter I read how to escape those winter blues (October) . I had recently just had my son Ethan who is now 6 weeks old and found it amazing how some mums can spring back into shape. I started to get my self down as im no longer a spring chicken. Until I read your article. It really put my mind at ease and I have now started swimming 3 times a week with Ethan. It gave me a positive mental attitude. Thanks Etiquette. Mary st.albans Email

After reading IVF hell (November) me and my partner were having our last round of IVF. Like the woman in the story we had saved up and payed out thousands but to our dismay no results until a few weeks ago. I went to my doctors for a routine check up and did a pregnancy test—it was positive. Reading that article gave me hope and I believe it put me in a positive state of mind to carry what is now a healthy growing bump. Thank you Etiquette for sharing her story. Ruth chichester Email

Jennifer Hunt, 27. Employed at SAB Millet, as a receptionist. Enjoys: Travelling, socialising
Our reader Jennifer Hunt went to Iceland to try out one of BA’s tip top deals. Here’s
left for Iceland on
the Friday morning and arrived on Saturday morning. The flight was long but I was very well looked after by the cabin crew. I managed to get on board the business class which cost me an extra £50 each way. I received champagne and auderves on my flight out and my flight back I received champagne and a selection of festive chocolates. The in flight meal was outstanding.
When I arrived at my hotel. It looked very authentic and my room was stunning. I had a view over the glaciers and could see nothing but a glorious landscape from each window. The first day I met up with the BA rep which stays at the hotel 24/7. She was very welcoming and helped me out which currency and also how to get around. With her on my stay I booked a tour with some Inuit's.
On this tour I spent one whole day from sunrise to sunset being shows the way of life and how to build a stable igloo. That night I had the choice of whether I wanted to stay over night with them. However I couldn't because id booked another trip for the following morning. I went to see the hot springs and it is truly magnificent. In total my flight and accommodation was Five star—no doubt about it.
Christmas It was an ideal break for me to get away and enjoy some of the rural and colder parts of the globe. I would advise this trip for anyone who wants to relax and go back to natures roots. Excursions cost between £50-150. Whilst there you can rent out a snow-ski for a small charge of £25 a day.

view on Women —Backlash to Eastwood We asked photographer Lisa Tilley to come down and give us here view on Women in the media to follow on from Stephen Eastwood, ‘…it is a little different that any other time in history; we always have a symbol or ideal of beauty, often from painters, sculptor’s way back to the Egyptian times and possibly before.’ This quote from New York’s, fashion photographer; Stephen Eastwood is the epitome of why I picked this subject to research. He quotes that he believes how women are viewed in the media goes way back and has always been like that. However other research suggests to me that the female body was not seen as a sex symbol until the First World War. Women were seen as motherly and were not advertised as sex symbols. However males were seen to be ‘sex symbols’ after the first ‘Levi’ jeans commercial advert (1980’s set in the 50’s). It showed a male body half naked bearing sculptured abs. It’s the start of the objectification of the male body
and men being seen as a target market for fashion and grooming products. This I feel is when Fashion changed its views. Eastwood took beauty shots to impress people, he wanted to create something that made the viewer say ‘WOW’ every time. However in the industry he noticed that to get higher in life and to achieve more money, he had to find something special, that something special was spending extra time retouching photographs to make the lighting perfect and the models skin immaculate. His work is all about how prefect women are seen in the media. As well as using colour photography he delves into black and white for more serious photographs. Bruce Weber is known for working with the famous fashion brands Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch. As
well as these high street fashion outlets he has worked on Ralph Laurens winter collections and also worked with Calvin Klein. Weber uses well maintained models with a perfect body. He usually photographs them in black and white – this is to add to the roughness and rugged effect of masculine sexuality. His work with men came around when men were being portrayed as sexual icons (1980’s). Weber’s career then delved into film making where he made short films about teenage boxers. Weber created the fashion label ‘Weberbilt’ in 2003. His clothing line went on sale in America and London. His controlled lighting shows the dominance of the sitter rather than the clothes. Bruce Weber’s famous films include one called ‘ain’t nothing like the real thing’ – this creates arguments as in this film he is
and men are now seen as ‘Sex symbols’ to sell products. This is a very different approach to when it was a very patriarchal society. Women would be at home working and looking after the children and the men would be out working. In Society today there are no uproars on the violation against women being airbrushed and made to look ‘perfect’. I researched artists’ who wanted to create the ‘perfect’ look and artists’ who wanted to show that ‘perfection’ comes from being natural and not being edited. I have come to the conclusion that ‘perfection’ in the way we see women and men in the media has come accustom to our everyday life. This makes it acceptable in today’s society as so much of it is happening.
suggesting that natural beauty is best; however his photographs are of men that are perfectly chiselled and groomed to perfection. Most of his work included almost naked males. Again linking back to the theory of nature and that ‘less is more’. But the argument of his perfect models still remains. Weber creates perfection in his photographs, like the one below. The subject is centre of the picture with a block background which makes the model the focus. It is in black and white and shows up the shading on the body. The contrast between the dark grey tones, mid gray tones and lights gray tones help to show definition on the subject body which helps to create a chiselled perfect effect.
on the left is of a boy in Avedon’s ‘American West’ book/series. His images are full of personal meaning to the sitter. This image was not taken for advertisement but just because Avedon wanted to show the way of American life. The image below is of Bruce Weber’s ‘Abercrombie and Fitch’ campaign. The image is emotionless and its main purpose is to sell ‘A&F’ products. It is forcing the viewer to think ‘if I buy that product I will look like that’. This shows a great contrast not only between the two Photographs but between the two artist’s approaches and the different outcomes they are trying to produce.
Richard Avedon’s approach to photography is different to any of the others I have researched. When he photographs subjects, he wants to find a personality- which is not what is seen to be done in fashion photography and glamour. The Image
Throughout this project my view on how women and men are portrayed in the media has differed. However from the research I have done it is noticeable to see that fashion and advertisements only want the best pictures. This includes airbrushing Written: Nicole Lane and photo shopping. Women 27
