Separated At Photoshop

Boing Boing recently featured a Ralph Lauren ad that had a scarily photoshopped model. Flirting with the Streisand Effect, Ralph Lauren bullied Blogger into a take down notice on the original Photoshop Disasters post. While the RL PR minions eventually expressed shock, shock that excessive photoshopping was going on, I have a different theory. I think they were letting John Currin do their art direction.

That is a shocking photo. I don't understand it either - why would you want a woman to look like that? I actually thought the fashion industry was getting better. Clearly not.

Those pictures are horrifying.

Well, the one on the right is considered Art.
