The series “Beauty Warriors” is a collection of photographs featuring strange and unusual-looking beauty products. All the products were bought on popular shopping sites, and most items were made from plastic and are cheap. These products promise instant cures to almost all beauty problems; they fight “problem zones” and promise to cure problems without surgical intervention.
Each photograph is carefully planned and prepared, the clothing was found in the charity shops.
During the sessions, we discussed beauty routines and secrets and of course, we had so much fun with trying out the beauty gadgets.
To be successful, you must be perfect and look perfect—these are our society’s rules, which we all follow without even realizing how ridiculous the standards are. We often forget about the importance of inner beauty.
The project is ongoing, as I just can’t stop buying these wonderful pieces!
I am very lucky for having such lovely models who allowed to take pictures of them! Thank you so much!
The project received LensCulture Portrait 2017 award and was nominated for Henry Nannen 2019 Award in Germany.
All the items are bought on Ebay. There are some screenshots from my Ebay purchase history.
