Have we lost the meaning of a raw image?
Have we forgotten what we really look like? Did we ever even KNOW?
I have no problem with airbrushing. Media must cater to the ideal.
It is the subject who must reimagine her place in creation.
Photography is nearing closer and closer to language, in that it approximates reality rather than attempting to capture it.
Images borrow from life, taking and giving and taking again. Nothing is sacred except the concept.
I think I am okay with this.
