Perfect Girls by Marie Hald

Photojournalist Marie Hald had to take a look at herself when creating her new series, ‘Perfect Girls’. The photographer who took notice of the rise in mental health issues amongst woman questions why we strive for perfection and the constant pressure women place on themselves, in relation to what we see in the media.

Hald states ‘ Is there anything as perfection? I’m not sure I believe there is. Yet we strive for it, me and my girlfriends. A lot of people tell us this is just what being in your twenties is like. You’ve had a hard time figuring out your place in the world and are now starting to earn what adulthood is about.’ She says’I see something happening. My friends are dropping out of their universities, taking sick leaves for stress and anxiety. It has happened to at least six of my friends in the last couple of years.’
