Is Photoshop Remixing the World?

"Photoshop has completely revolutionized our visual culture. Artists now use Photoshop to create complex imagery that would have been impossible 20 years ago. It has also profoundly changed the art of photo retouching, turning a labor intensive process into an artful and often controversial digital workflow. But possibly the most current and expressive influence can be seen in meme culture online. With the ability to alter any image in the media landscape, everyday people now have the means to critically comment on culture and spread their ideas virally, leveling the playing field between traditional media creators and consumers. Photoshop has changed the way we communicate, the way we express ourselves, and the way we view the world and each other."

21 year old Valeria Lukyanova wants to be a real-life Barbie doll

"Most little girls grow up playing with Barbie dolls. Some even want to look like them. One 21–year–old has become one, or so she says.

Valeria Lukyanova has become an internet sensation in her home country of Russia, claiming on her blog to be the most famed woman on the Russian–language internet.

Her doll–like features, long blonde hair and 'perfect' body make her look like a real life Barbie."

Oprah Winfrey's infamous body transplant

"Lately, websites such as Jezebel have become vigilant on reporting the cover misdeeds of magazines such as Redbook, Glamour and Vogue. It was Jezebel who published a 'before' and 'after' shot of Faith Hill from the July 2007 cover of Redbook that showed how a prominent clavicle or a freckled forearm are forbidden and quickly airbrushed to perfection.
...
Anyway, over the weekend, I was browsing the Museum of Hoaxes photo gallery and came across the worst case of photoshopping ever. The Aug. 26, 1989, cover of TV Guide, left, didn't just elongate Oprah's neck or add a waist and sexy biceps. Hell, no! They took a picture of the TV titan's head and transposed it onto the body of Ann–Margaret. (The shot of the iconic redhead had been taken in 1979.) Of course, it was clear that Oprah would not have posed on a pile of money. But it wasn't until the designer of the purple dress spoke up that TV Guide admitted to playing Freaky Friday with the photos."

The Photoshop Beauties: Before and After

"Usually we don't realize the hours of photoshopping spent on magazine and advertising images before publication. The raw photographic material reveals a lot about the fine craft of 'beauty construction'. The photo above shows documentary maker, former soap actress and challenger of the beauty industry Sunny Bergman, before and after 'the photoshop'.

Sunny's latest documentary Beperkt Houdbaar (Limited Preservation) makes a powerful analysis of the cultivation of the body for the beauty industry's economic benefit."
