Extreme Beauty

Can something be beautiful and ugly at the same time? Referencing Sci-Fi and the futuristic aesthetic, Extreme Beauty looks at issues of beauty and ugliness whilst also delving into the idea of gender or the genderless. By using portraiture photography, the images explore Alien Beauty as an influential trend on Instagram which challenges the traditional notions of beauty. In our contemporary society, the phenomenon of Social Media creates a sense of freedom and gives us access to an enormous range of ‘how to’ videos and influencers’ tutorials. Sophisticated makeup techniques enable the creation of an array of visual effects to showcase a new world of expression which questions our preconceptions about beauty.
