My contemporary figures for this image construction are Zoe Sugg and Marzia Bisognin. The one on the left is Marzia and the one on the right is Zoe.
(Bisognin, 2016) (Sugg, 2017).
They are both YouTubers who are branching out from making videos on YouTube, to creating their own fashion lines and writing books. Here are some examples:
(Bisognin, 2016) (Sugg, 2014).
I decided to find pictures of them sitting down and looking away from the camera in a relaxed manner but that did not work out. I had to find a picture of them cross-legged so it would seem as though they are sitting on the grass. That did not work out either.
So I ended up finding pictures of them standing. It was easier to search for than the others, but it still took me a while to get the right picture to convey the meaning I wanted for this project.
I used these pictures I found on their Instagram accounts for my image construction. I placed them in my background and this is what they look like.
That’s it for now.
