Aux yeux (to the eyes). Look to the eyes. What are they telling us? On the surface, Captivation is a fun look at glamour, and how we ladies go to such great lengths, and how we suffer for our beauty. I have always found it shocking when a woman says she is too busy with work and has no time for hair and makeup. What? Seriously? But think about it. What really lies underneath? Why is our natural beauty deemed insufficient? Are we being held to some societal standard of beauty? Of course we are. But wait. While justified rebellion may not make us stop, it makes one stop and think how all of this originated, and why. Then, consider the eye in the frame at top left. She looks like she may be a little younger. What are we teaching the next generation? How are we affecting impressionable minds? And what do we do about it?
