It's common practice for people in the magazine industry to retouch photos in their magazine, sometimes to the extent that the photographs don't even reflect the image of the person the photo was taken of. These Metra Bruno and Laurence Jeanson images reflect on the issue of using altered retouched photos rather than the natural human condition in their photo series.

The models' faces are taped with cut-outs from various magazine spreads to poke fun at the idea of excessive alteration that magazine companies are infamous for. Magazines and advertisers won't even consider the natural state of a person's figure, because society has been conditioned to think it's unacceptable. Make-up artist and high-end retouchers probably won't take these images lightly, but it's come to a point where a line needs to be drawn.
