Art Forum: Placing photography in the 21st century - question 16

Roxy Thomas yr 11 from St Andrew’s Cathedral School

I have two questions for Christian Blanchard.

Do you think it is necessary for your photos to have models that are skinny with model looks for your photos to be appealing?

And do you believe that this view of the woman have bad effects on women in our society, such a anorexia and body image, do you think your photos should have models of the normal weight who look like the normal woman with a average body weight and shape?
