If you're looking for something comparable to An Aperture Monograph or In The American West, this isn't it. It's more a social treatise than an artistic statement, but both elements are present to some degree in each image. And it's an important statement, especially in our current society where the anorexic model is considered the highest standard of beauty, while the women depicted in this collection are marginalized.
