No one remembers Sylvia Pankhurst for being 'slim'. So often we celebrate women for their weight loss success over all other achievements or qualities. Frustrated with this, I placed myself within the pages of a pile of 1980's 'Slimming' magazines, following the often-ridiculous exercise routines and diets. By picking apart and reassembling the adverts and images, I hope to use the outdated and somewhat nostalgic material to laugh with as well as question these ideologies and bring to light contemporary issues around definitions of 'success'. 

 

Nine Slices of Bread was selected for Source Magazine's Graduate Photography 2017. 
"When I started to go through Ocean Farini's 'Nine Slices of Bread' I suddenly found myself immersed in a sharp and witty way of discussing the delicate topic of the definition of success and the self-representation driven by the standard of beauty which modern societies dictate. I found it particularly interesting how Farini uses the form of the magazine together with collages, self-portraits and archives to create a product that - using a language typical of the 80s - underlines how despite a cultural and technological development, modern society still nurtures a chauvinist and distorted image of women."
