Retouching: An invisible lie

We have all heard that magazine covers, movies, television -- whatever media you choose -- uses 'retouching' to make their 'stars', models, objects...look flawless. Well, the 'Swedish Campaign' has come out with the truth.

We can now see exactly what is being retouched. And I, who was already aware of retouching, am astonished to find how very much is actually changed and...to what degree.

They have developed a before and after photo of a model on a magazine. This is all in hopes to interfere with the negative brainwash forced upon children everyday. Maybe our future will look brighter...and a little more natural.
