Mr. Toledanos Schönheitschirurgie-Fotografie

yvette

Mr. Toledano hat eine neue Fotoserie am Start, in der er Leute portraitiert, die sich ein paar mal zu oft unters Messer eines Schönheitschirurgen gelegt haben. Beeindruckend an diesen Bildern ist die eingefangene Verletzlichkeit des Menschen, ohne die Freakigkeit des Themas aufzugeben. Sweet!

Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?

When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?

Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?
