My project aims to create an imperfect “perfect” image. I wanted to create conventionally beautiful images of women and explore how I could deconstruct them. I achieved this through techniques such as burning, bleaching, tearing and cutting. I felt as though the aim of my project was perfectly encompassed in its title, “Kalon” - beauty that is more than skin deep. I thought, by physically destroying the images that I had created, I was challenging the ideal that women are constantly exposed to through both social media and fashion magazines, and supporting the contrary idea that beauty, is in fact, more than skin deep.
