“Vogue Brazil” Makes Models for People with Disabilities

by | February 1, 2017

Fierce Shitstorm for the “Vogue Brazil”. Your way! Because the magazine has made ordinary models by Photoshop to people with disabilities, to promote the Paralympics.

To promote the Paralympic Games in Rio, the “Vogue” shows a Fotohooting with participants – it seems at first glance. But: The models don’t is what with disability. Your handicap by Photoshop missed them.

Model CLEO Pires was amputated times simply electronically by clicking the right arm, her colleague Paulo Vilhena is held over two legs on the left. He wears a retouched implant on the right leg. To “Vogue” writes: “We are all Paralympics participants”.

The message is clear, to time the missing arm and the Beinprotese of two real Paralympics participants, the doctored Brazilians Renate Leite and Bruna Alexandre via Photoshop. Still hailing it fierce criticism.

Paralympic athlete fights back
A spokesman for the organisation scope, advocating for people with disabilities, said the “Huffington Post”: “It’s hard to understand why vogue saw the necessity to take non-disabled models for a Paralympics kampane.” The action is criticized in the social media.

A spokesman for the magazine told the Huffington Post that the idea had been conceived not by ‘Vogue’ itself, but by a PR Agency. ‘Vogue’ respect the opinions of readers who were not satisfied with the campaign.

Also Paralympics athlete Bruna Alexandre, who will compete in the table tennis in Rio, spoke with Instagram. “I’m so proud to be a part of this campaign of Vogue.” The models CLEO Pires and Paulo Vilhena, with which it jointly photographed for Instagram, had helped as Ambassador, the Paralympic Movement “to spread, to make visible and to convince the Brazilian fans, to be at the games in Rio”, so the athlete.

Guys, I’ve been clear that I’m super proud to be a part of this campaign that the magazine #Vogue began to release the first images of this beautiful work. Our Paralympic Ambassadors Cleo Pires and Paulo Vilhena, helped us to intensify and spread the campaign to generate visibility to the Paralympic Movement and convene the Brazilian fans to mark presence in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. I would like to emphasize that #SomosTodosIguais and that’s why Cleo Pires represents me. In the next few days, you will have full access to the campaign. #VemComAGenteBrasil and I hope I have all Brazilian fans in the arenas is thus twisting, vibrating, singing and celebrating with us!
