Pink & Blue

We talked about JeongMee Yoon's ongoing Pink & Blue Project the other day in class and I fell in love with these images. They're awesome by themselves, but all of the prints combined make an even larger statement (there are about 60 on the website). The artist said this in her statement:
This project explores the trends in cultural preferences and the differences in the tastes of children (and their parents) from diverse cultures, ethnic groups as well as gender socialization and identity. The work also raises other issues, such as the relationship between gender and consumerism, urbanization, the globalization of consumerism and the new capitalism.
