When Classic Art Gets The Photoshop Treatment

classic-art-with-photoshop-retouch

When someone mentions Photoshop today, no one even raises an eyebrow. When you look in magazines, especially fashion magazines, everyone knows that every single picture you see in there is photoshopped beyond recognition. It’s just how the advertising world works it seems. This powerful tool that is at pretty much everyone’s disposal has truly changed the world we live in. It’s a way to become more perfect, or at least that’s what people think. Where you and I see perfection, the photographer is most likely to see flaws and bring out the Photoshop software to brush it up a little just so they can feel a little bit more confident.

Some people go even further than that. If we take a look at the Greek marble busts for example, we see a whole different beauty ideal than what we see today. Back then, women and men didn’t look like sticks. They had curves even though they had muscles. Where did that ideal go, and why did we leave it in the dust? Well, there is one simple answer to that, and it is because people became more self-aware. We can’t stand imperfection, and we constantly strive to perfect the resources that were given to us at birth, sadly.

What would classic art look like if we used the Photoshop technique to make it a little bit more up to date for example? Quite different, right? Well, now you have the opportunity to check that out actually. A project called the “Venus Project,” undertaken by Anna Utopia Giordano, is certainly going to blow your mind. Gone are the aesthetics of fine art, and what’s left behind is a really bad up to date… illustration, or at least that is what it looks like to me. Nah, I am more of a fan of the original art than some of the sticks that we see as models in today’s ads and commercials. But, it’s a pretty cool look at how powerful Photoshop really is.
