Suffocation of Barbie and Friends

I was walking through a thrift store one day looking through toys (because I like toys) and I came across the Barbie section.  The display consisted of several dolls in plastic bags hanging together at the end of a children's clothing rack.  I was fascinated by it.  I have always had an issue with Barbie and her message of beauty, but seeing these mini-(mis)representations of women suffocating in plastic, many of them missing their clothing, was the most disturbing image of Barbie and her friends I had seen.  I felt the need to capture the images.  These are what we are selling to our kids! 
So I went home to get my camera and got these photos.
