Brigette and Tony - Beneath the Book’s Cover

Tony Ryan - Friday, April 21, 2006

I have for a long time wanted to write a specific piece about women and cosmetic surgery. A recent discussion has prompted me to do it now. I have been attending a spiritual dance class where I have met many women who differ in personality and looks greatly to the models I photograph. [More]

People tend to forget about themselves in exploration of the big world.How can we be true to ourselves when we haven't discovered ourselves wholly and souly? How can we find our soul mate when we haven't fully understood ourselves? [More]

Tessa’s Thoughts

Tony Ryan - Friday, February 17, 2006

I am an only child and growing up, went to many different schools all over the world. I have noticed that years of never having any stable friendships have taken a toll on who I am as a person. I am always wary of what people are thinking of me. Am I good enough to be someone’s friend? Will they think I am a loser? I often pondered why I thought these things. Does everyone have these thoughts? As I grow older I am more aware of who I am inside and therefore how other people must be. I was always so selfish to think of what they were thinking about me, did they like me, how could I make them like me more. I never focused on trying to make myself a better person and therefore stop thinking about what other people thought. [More]

Ramona’s Comments

Like everyone - man or woman, I feel self conscious of myself to a certain extent. Not so much how I talk, what I say or how I think, more in a physical sense. How I look or how I feel.... what people might say about one of my physical attributes. In the world of modeling, there is a lot of pressure to look a certain way - tall, lean, fit, toned but skinny is the word you will hear most. [More]

07:12 pm - Something i wrote...
…And so I write. Type. Whatever. Type seems to lack in poetry, but I guess we have to find our own in an age where technology rules. That and advertising… And fashion… And sex. It seems a shame that it all so often goes sour, or gets outdated. So you're left single, feeling a little empty and laughed at for still sporting last seasons threads and an empty wallet. And wasn’t it just to impress that amazing person who is now dating a younger model? [More]

Anita’s Thoughts

Tony Ryan - Thursday, November 04, 2004

These photos mean a great deal to me. Like most females, I have struggled with my appearance since I was about 13. However I was actually severely depressed for several years and admitted to hospital following a suicide attempt. No- one needs to hear about the pressure on girls to look good in society, it's pervasive in every aspect of our lives. Our insecurity is an excellent marketing tool, enabling the cosmetics industry and plastic surgeons to make millions from us every year. [More]
