Photographers Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer have created a unique and stunning photo commentary called 'I Knew Some of You Better Than Others, but I Miss You All.'

A commentary on society's modern perceptions of beauty, the series features the bodies of Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer, with photos of models' faces used in place of the photographers' faces. The series is amazingly executed, with the angles and contours of the photos almost perfectly aligned to Keller's and Martin's bodies.

The contrast between the perfect-looking models in the photos and Keller's and Wittner's ordinary -- or "crude, raw physicality," as PSFK describes -- bodies highlights advertising media's disjointed notion of beauty as it pertains to real-world beauty and conveys an interesting take on today's ideas of physical perfection.
