Barbie is a product that has successfully appealed to millions of girls over the number of generations, and it is still one of the bestselling and best-known toys in the world. But, even this well-known toy has an overlooked side, and strangely enough, it’s Barbie’s face. Through my project “Face of Barbie”, I have used close-up photography to explore the question of who Barbie really is, and seeing what Barbie’s face reveals about the doll and the dreams it evokes in girls.
