Europe Wants to Ban Airbrushing in Fashion Photography 2009-12-22 10:04:52

Europe Fights to Ban Fashion Airbrushing

Europeans are taking a major stand against airbrushing in fashion photography. Following a proposed law that would require all retouched photos be labeled, Europeans are now demanding a ban on all ads featuring digitally altered models targeting girls under 16 years old.

This follows a report that found "a correlation between unhealthy behavior in adolescents who are exposed to images of skinny, airbrushed models."

“The weight of the evidence . . . shows that thin, ‘perfected’ media images have a detrimental effect on how girls and women think and feel about their own bodies," said Dr. Helga Dittmar of the University of Sussex, one of the authors of the report.
