pink & blue

March 21, 2010

these mindboggling photos are part of The Pink and Blue Project by korean photographer, jeongmee yoon. she photographs children in their bedrooms surrounded by every single blue (for boys) or pink (for girls) item that they own. the project stemmed from her daughter’s obsession with all things pink, which is apparently common all over the world. it’s astonishing to see all the different products marketed in this color code- pink hairbrushes, ponies, and tutus for girls and blue maps, bike helmets, and dinosaur books for boys. so MANY things and so PINK and they’re so YOUNG! disturbing in terms of development of gender identity and materialism. fascinating that color codes also cross cultural boundaries…

her other photos are equally compelling, portraits of korean people in their workspaces. she obviously has a penchant for people and symmetry and things….
