unlike the intended ‘perfect’ retouched fashion image, these images explore the extent of the reworking that is involved to produce such an image. these corrections form a pattern of individual elements that function in a related way. transforming the body into a new vessel, a distortion, vacuous of it’s natural form.

This work discusses the portrayal of body image by fashion imagery and it’s effect on young women and men. the seduction of the fashion industry is paralleled by the negative expectations this imagery carries. these works aim to reveal the fabrication involved by deconstructing the bodies form. exposing just how much the face and body is being transformed distorts the origin of what is the desired.
