Harper's Bazaar Brazil's June 2012 'The Soft Skin' editorial exhibits a surreal and digitally manipulated brand of photography. While many, if not all, magazines are pro-enhancement, changing the size and overall looks of models, this spread has taken the movement to a whole new level.
Thairine Garcia's features come off as almost robotic in The Soft Skin. Her mesmerizing blue eyes have an ethereal quality about them, as do her nude lips. Zee Nunes' camera work has strayed away from an au natural approach in just about every sense here, and his artistic expertise have helped to put on this editorial's otherworldly traits.
The display of white, brown and red furs put on by stylist Flavia Lafer furthered the cold and automated feel of this Harper's Bazaar production, bringing out the best of fall ensembles before the rest.
