Behind the flaws is a series of fashion and beauty portraits from which I have extracted the ‘alpha’ layer to draw attention on the post production and retouching work. For me, this method of image improvement and the meticulous brushstrokes utilised echoes a painter’s work or to art restoration.

Retouching does not necessarily aim to dictate the beauty canons. Its first purpose is to perfect the art of light. With this series, I want to raise awareness about the retoucher’s art and attempt to lift the veil on their hidden work.
