Photo Series Shows Fashion Faces Transformed to Appear Grotesque

Ofer_Wolberger_Photography

For his series Crumpled Paper, Brooklyn-based photographer Ofer Wolberger took images from the pages of fashion magazines. He folded, crumpled, taped and lit them from behind, allowing the photographs to morph both sides of the page. The project was used to re-conceive and re-explore the idealized images of beauty found in women’s magazines. In some cases, the models’ faces become distorted and even grotesque, causing us to consider a different perspective on beauty.

    This work looks a lot like my my from 2008 while attending #SCAD Atlanta. The same content the same treatment of materials and similar compositions Some of his other work reminds me of my Professor Suellen Parker with the Sculpture figures placed in photographs.Hummm.

    Yeah I also did something extremely similar in my first year of Uni, and i-D magazine actually published some work following the same series in 2012. It’s not really that much of an ‘original’ idea. (Though what is?)
