As a group, we have decided to research the culture of beauty and obsession with image throughout Asia, specifically concerning image-related subcultures throughout Japan, Korea and China e.g. harajuku, kawaii, aegyo cultures. We intend to research this culture primarily through platforms such as Tumblr, Instagram and blogs.
The reason why we have chosen this topic is because we all have a fascination with this field. Image is an interesting and vast topic and everyone in the world is involved with it. It is the way in which we choose to present ourselves to the world and can dictate and change so much of our lives.
With our studies of Asia, this topic seemed appropriate as image and beauty is such a large part of these cultures.
