fashion photography, luscious and surreal images, unrealistic pictures from Sois Belle by Annelie Vandendael

Sois Belle A photography project by Annelie Vandendael

Look once — then look again. These luscious, surreal images challenge the unrealistic standards of perfection set by fashion photography, provoking playfulness rather than airbrushed beauty.

These photos are my reaction to the standards of Fashion Photography. Nowadays, it is no longer clear whether we are looking at “real” images or fake ones; either way, they are manipulated and photo-shopped. Torsos are lengthened, waists thinned, collarbones made cavernous, and landscapes brightened. As for me, I’m much more interested in representing real people, with all of their imperfections. —Annelie Vandendael
