TED Talk: Lizzie Velasquez – How Do YOU Define Yourself

TEDx Austin Women_How Do YOU Define Yourself_Lizzie Velasquez

In a time when beauty is defined by supermodels, success is defined by wealth, and fame is deified by how many followers you have on social media, Lizzie Velasquez asks the question how do you define yourself? Once labeled, “The Worlds Ugliest Woman,” Lizzie decided to turn things around and create her own definitions of what she defines as beauty and happiness.

Thanks to Lewis for finding this.

Katarzyna Majak’s Portraits Of Modern Witches: “Women of Power”

Katarzyna Majak‘s photo series “Women of Power” captures the faces and dress of earth-worshipping Polish women who are powerful among their particular spiritual sectors.

The vast majority of Poland’s people (90%) are practicing Catholics. When Christianity was introduced to Poland a few centuries ago, it erased most traces of paganism, witchcraft, and shamanic traditions.

The women Majak photographs represent the very small minority of Polish women who practice alternative spirituality. For many of these women, this series depicts their first public display of power.

They “practice a wide range of spiritual paths and spiritual systems. A few are traditional healers – so called ‘whisperers’ who mix religion with primeval superstitions to heal and remove spells using prayers – whose traditions survived on the Belarusian border. Some are women who had grandmothers who could ‘see’ or were herbal healers and who are working to revive what would otherwise be dead traditions.”

Porter Contemporary, where Majak’s work was featured in 2012, writes, “When asked what being a witch meant to one of the subjects in the series, she replied ‘A witch is a woman of knowledge who takes a broom and sweeps to cleanse the world.’”

“The film studios, the celebrities, the entertainment capital of the United States – the state of California – revolves around the film industry and its success. Projecting an image of fame and fortune, beauty and happiness, Hollywood draws people like a magnet. In a world where maximum media exposure is akin to success, and image is everything, all television, magazine, cinema, and Internet coverage is important and in a sense, vital,” Anoush Abrar says.

“Californication” follows a slew of striving starlets who are trying their hand at Hollywood. Anoush Abrar chose to concentrate on female hopefuls as they “have more opportunities for success” than their male counterparts. However, it is these exact “opportunities” that his series exposes as both questionable and exploitive. Abrar draws the curtain on the facade and steps back just enough to reveal the reality in the fantasy.

Messy studios, equipment, and other photographers are often peaking into the frame. Scantily clad women are made strange when juxtaposed against mundane backgrounds of empty hallways, living rooms, and sterile offices. “Californication” paints itself as set of bizarre tableaus imbued with desperation and discomfort, the hot lights promising one more chance.
