A Controversial Campaign This campaign (shown below), in the January issue of Plus Model Magazine, has stirred up plenty of controversy. With the year just beginning, this may be one of the most controversial campaigns on weight we’ve seen.Throughout recent history, anorexia and modeling seem to catch plenty of attention due to health concerns and the public image.

Photographer Hal is no exception as he vacuum packs his models in his wacked out series called “Fresh Love”.
