Photographer Fabrice Fouillet, in conjunction with the art and design group Le Creative Sweatshop, have produced a series of photographs that depict cosmetic products taking some serious abuse.
The series is titled simply, 'Damaged: cosmetic alteration,' which is a succinct description. Fabrice Fouillet and Le Creative Sweatshop spare no mercy to their muses. Every photograph shows a product being burned, melted, smashed or stabbed. All this destruction may conjure images of chaos and disorder.
Impressively, Fabrice Fouillet's photographs of these damaged products are composed such that they express a sense of order, even elegance. The monochromatic settings help to achieve this effect through defining the outlines of the cosmetic products and the weapons used to destroy them. Fabrice Fouillet's sense of timing captures the exact moment of destruction.
