Plastic by PorcelainPoet Plastic by PorcelainPoet
Model is Jayla

Some people demand a description on these types of photos. Initially I didn't want to put one.
But I'll briefly say, the beginning concept was the models.
We then both developed it into what you see here.
She had the needles which you see on her neck (she'd gotten them from a veterinary place) and I had the syringe.
The neck was her idea and from there I progressed by adding the syringe idea. I told her to make it look like she was injecting her lip and I had her put gloss on her eyes and lips to give herself an extra plastic look.

The end result became a reflection of plastic surgery and our materialistic society, where everything is all about how to be beautiful.. and you are always told you'll never be good enough.

I love the nearly flippant way the subject matter is handled. It adds to the irony of the shot.

Awesome concept. I love how artisitcally you addressed it. Something inside of me floats up whenever I see artist addressing very important but ignored issues like this.
