Make Me

The Standard Package Part I, 2008

After stumbling into a world of online beauty pageants mostly for children & teenagers, I was immediately attracted and repelled. I started looking for retouchers who aimed their low cost services at the mother. The retouchers know I’m a photographer but not necessarily the model. On submitting the image for a makeover I stated ‘I trust your judgment on the level of retouching needed’, there after I avoided offering instructions on the possibilities of retouching that could be done and accepted the first image they sent.
