This piece is highly evocative, the beauty of the model startles the viewer, and when they realise what the condemning lines mean, the feeling of the picture changes from admiration to contempt for the fashion industry. We are reminded that beauty is also in the person, and that they are not just a soulless item to adjust and to be played with, and then thrown away for a younger model. This piece is sublime in its most basic form, beauty that is able to tear us apart, literally, in the quest for perfection; people are willing to be cut apart to enhance their bodies and faces.

It reminds us that beauty is fragile and vague, something to admire and not simply to measure. Overall, a wonderful piece that sends a key issue right home.

This is a truly beautiful photo. The model is beautiful, of course. I love the emotion the photographer is trying to get across. No matter how much we change our appearence are we really any more beautiful? We cut, pull, twist, stretch, inject, but what does that make us? We were made beautiful as we are naturally. No surgery or makeup. The world has twisted the belief of what beauty really is and we are all trying to be perfect. Perfection is impossible. We need to learn to be content with who we are and the beauty we have. No doctor or lotion can really make us any better. It's how we see ourselves. This photo makes you think and it shows how crazy for beauty we've become. Amazing shot! :heart:

It is very beautiful the image itself doesn't have alot of colors or things going on and looks very natural but, so stunning. The simplicity of it I think enhances the beauty of the photo and at the same time makes an excellent point on the worlds struggle for "Perfection"
The surgery lines drawn on her and the way everything goes sort of strikes sadness into my heart. This image is very true even women who are very beautiful will go under the knife to try and achieve "Perfection" even if they had no need for it. Its both saddening and sickening.

All in all. Beautiful Shot Beautiful model, Beautiful Point.
Everything was captured and Displayed oh so Magnificently.
Keep up the brilliant work.

Great concept in its simplicity but deep meaning. I love how she's washed out, her lips, face, hair almost all match. It really draws you to her eyes and the lines
AnjaRoehrich Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010

She's so perfect, but the makeup she's wearing (including the "lipstick") actually makes me feel uncomfortable... o_o I wish all that could be taken off!

Woah, die Augen auf dem Bild, genial ...
Tolle Idee, Lina ist ein super Model.
princessparanoid Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2010   Photographer
great.. f*** society tells us how to look like
even if some say they don't care, it hurts them also when they were laughed at and they will also look in the mirrow searching "mistakes"
it's cruel..
and the photo shows: it's sick!
the model is beautiful, and though she wants to change
really good work

Interesting concept. It always seems that the beautiful are never beautiful enough for society. It's a shame really. Fantastic job.

Aypeus Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2010
If there was something called the "perfect face" with the "perfect set of features" this face would bear both titels combined. But these is only in the small mind of men, true genuin "perfection" lies behind the scene, hidden inside the ugliness of life's reality.
