Youth
This is what it’s all about my little ones, so gather round. As a model, you are more involved than most in the defining act of our age: the commercial transaction. You are there to sell things. Things. Inanimate objects. By purchasing them, the consumer believes that an alchemical process will take place. They will become something else, someone else. It doesn’t work, of course. Maybe next time… In most cases, this isn’t a conscious process. It is unexamined, even automatic. It is there in all of us to some degree, a spider spinning webs in the darkness of a wardrobe. But how does a model sell things? What makes the consumer bite? A kind of sympathetic magic is at work. By wearing the same shoes or carrying the same bag, the consumer will incarnate the desirable attributes of the model. Our societies assure us that the most desirable attribute of all is youth, from which proceeds sex, freedom, hope, and time. It is vital to remember that this youth is constructed. It is not real. On many occasions I would look at a picture of myself in a magazine. I would notice the moles that had been removed from my face. I would observe the way that light and shadow conspired to give me pectoral muscles that did not exist. I would look at hair tortured into ‘natural’ waves and at teeth cleaned of tobacco stains. I would not recognize myself. I have learned that it is best not to try. It is better to turn the page. (via The A to Z Guide to the Fucked Up World of Male Modeling)
