#imperfection - photo manipulation, 2016

‘perfect’ and ‘imperfect’ are terms that change throughout the ages. For ‘#imperfection’ nine portrait images were selected from Instagram which can currently be described as 'perfect'. Each picture shows a clean face and has a filter over it which reinforces this lack of detail. To revive these portraits, they were partly covered with images that can currently be described as ‘imperfect’. Each of these images shows a detailed body part that most people would rather not show on the social media. Instagram filters are mostly used to conceal our human details, our imperfections. In these images they do the opposite, highlighting these body parts in such a way that they create a new whole with the original portrait.
