Enter the Please Read Giveaway!
Congratulations to Book Divas' member dianaers for winning the PLEASE READ giveaway!
The tumultuous years in a young woman’s life, once recorded on the pages of personal diaries, are now publicly posted on the virtual pages of social networking sites, and American culture is saturated with imagery depicting adolescents through reality shows, TV dramas, movies, magazines, and the internet. Photographer Kate Engelbrecht questioned the image of adolescent girls portrayed through these media outlets, and found herself wondering if we truly understand girls today, or do we simply consume what is fed to us? The Girl Project was born out of her curiosity about contemporary teenage girls, and whether their lives differ that greatly from previous generations due to today’s media influence. In PLEASE READ (if at all possible): THE GIRL PROJECT, Engelbrecht has reached out directly to the source for answers.
