a new kind of beauty

phillip tolendano has a show up at gallery 339 until january 28th. i strongly urge you to go see these incredible large scale portraits of plastic transformed people. i have seen one other photography show
quiet as remarkable in my life.

Tolendano's use of light, make up and subject create this seamless line of imagery that leaves the viewer
unsure of gender, ethnicity or age. it's highly effective. while most of his subjects begin to look like clay from the overuse of cosmetic surgery, the fact that you can see the very pores and folds on their skin makes it all to clear that you are in fact visually engaging with a very real person.

Epic. see it. buy the signed book for $45- check out his other work or else you're missing out.
