    "Evi Kemmler book review" Evi Kemmler’s Book Review When we first open “Performing Identity”, the black background draws all our attentions to the colourful one picture to a page layout. The pictures are all displayed on the right side, and carry a kind of “message” in them, creating a story for the viewer. Performing Identity is a series of images that let us in the “make-up/fashion” world of a 13-year-old girl named Poppy. On one side, we see that the media has created the idea of “The perfect body” and how that is a massive influenced on the way young girls decide to present themselves. Trying to compete and imitate what they see in magazines, they attempt to achieve the perfect status by putting lots of make-up and dressing like some of the most influential celebrities. On the other side we eyewitness one of the fun parts of growing up, dressing up in distinctive styles, trying out the deferent sides of their personality, and finding out who they are. The pictures are... More > very interesting, and affective to the topic. The first set of photos is more serious, and show Poppy’s dedicated side. It includes close-ups of her putting make-up and macro’s of all her accessories and make-up kit. While the second set of photos are more humorous and entertaining, showing Poppy and her friends socialising, giving lots of personality to the book. I enjoyed very much swimming through all these images, and getting a chance to be a part of a slice of Poppy’s life.< Less
