Mr Toledano









Mr Toledano is a photographer who explores body image, self perception and the facade that we present to the world, I thought some of his works had a strong correlation with ideas that we are exploring in the Mask part of portfolio and I also thought that is work would interest those of you who have an interest beyond the fashion that we apply to our bodies, the tattoo's and plastic surgery as Mr Toledano has produced a startling series called 'a new kind of beauty'.
"I’m interested in what we define as beauty, when we choose to create it ourselves.
Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make?
Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?
When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?
Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?" Mr Toledano
