BWDTT is an ongoing photo project I am doing. It basically stems from my fascination of juxtapositions, putting two things together that seem to contradict each other, but can actually make both things better. It is inspired partly by the fact that we as humans, as a society, has a tendency to equate beauty with goodness, as said by the Russian author Tolstoy:
“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness”
The title itself is inspired by a quote I read in an interview with musician and poet Tom Waits,
“I like beautiful songs about terrible things”
So the purpose of the project is to create a series of pictures where women that are by society’s standards deemed beautiful, depicted doing things that that same society deems terrible, and that show a character that is perhaps anything but good.
