Photographer Paola Kudacki is celebrated for her unusual projects that go against what's often deemed as normal -- with one of her past works being an editorial for Paper Magazine that starred a nude Miley Cyrus.

For 'Plasticity,' Kudacki considers how damaging shallow beauty standards can be -- which, as the title suggests, perpetuate the idea that complete perfection is attainable. In order to illustrate this, she has the models pose in uncomfortable orientations -- with the many unconventional props that are used helping to enhance this.

In a selection of images, Kudacki has her subjects' faces and bodies covered in tape, showing them bound by plastic. This represents the previously mentioned idea that they need to adhere to an ideal that's wholly unnatural.
