After writing so many articles over the past year about unusual Barbie photography, I’m finally coming to the party that a lot of people don’t like her. Why is it that she is so much fun to hate? It’s kinda sad really. Although I have to admit, I almost hate her as much as Hello Kitty. She’s definitely a close second just for her annoyance.
Below is a sampling of photography from self-taught photographer Mariel Clayton. Street Couch recently interviewed Mariel about these photographs. When she was asked why she did this to Barbie, her response was, “Because I hate Barbie. You can’t get to be Barbie without an ocean’s worth of peroxide, 27 plastic surgeries and a complete lack of intelligence, so it irritates me immensely that this is the toy of choice women give to their daughters to emulate.”
I agree, but dang girl, a Barbie psychopath? And what about all the anger it seems she has towards men? Mariel says she’s not angry at all, she just thinks it’s funny. Well, I think it’s funny too. Mariel says that most men “get her humor,” and most women don’t like it. They think she is unbalanced and disturbed. I think it’s very creative and well done. I’m a woman, and I like it Mariel! You go girl! You can check out more of Mariel’s work on the Mariel Clayton website, and the Mariel Clayton flickr page. Thank you to my friend @CtKscribe for showing me these pictures!
