Literally finding her inspiration in the pages of fashion rags, artist Alana Dee Haynes rips out magazine photos and gives them complete makeovers with her tattoo-styled drawings.
Transforming the overly sexualized and overly glamorized editorial models into inked up individuals, the artist incorporates her own personal taste into each of the images. Thus she completely overrides fashion photographers’ high-flung visions and popular magazines’ desire to set trends and sell products to consumers by obscuring the original images and making them much more edgy and interesting. Models, clothes and setups look that much more intense and visually stimulating with her designs.
Alana Dee Haynes has an entire Tumblr devoted to her amazing manipulations of magazine photos, showcasing a cool way to hack the incredibly vain world of fashion.
