Retouching Parody by Metra Bruno and Laurence Jeanson
Metra Bruno and Laurence Jeanson decided to poke fun at the retouching industry. I’m sure you’re fully aware, or at least have a clue about the mass Photoshop retouching that goes on after photo shoots. This creative experiment was concluded to show a notion of identity. The portraits are accompanied by magazine cutouts, which are then taped to the models faces. I think the overall message is that beauty is no longer natural, but rather socially conditioned.
