Pictures from the photo shoot for America’s Next Top model that specified that the women had to appear to be murdered (here).









Ironically, models were critiqued by Tyra Banks for having “dead eyes.”

This is about as mainstream as culture gets.

“For the male, the repulsion [felt "for woman as such"] is sexually intense, genitally focused, sexually solipsistic, without any critical or moral self-consciousness. Photograph what she is, painted pink; the camera delivers her up as a dead thing; the picture is of a corpse, embalmed. The contemporary novelist does it with words: paints the thing, fucks it, kills it” (Andrea Dworkin).
