>> Inez van Lamsweerde's Philosophy on Retouching: "We Have All Become Avatars" —Inez van Lamsweerde recently revealed her favorite models to work with, but she notes it's "much easier" to do self-portraits, "because you can make yourself into anything, and not worry about ugliness." She also says her piece on retouching: "I can't say that I like it when an image is retouched to death, or when the person doesn't look like themselves any more. When it comes to retouching wrinkles, we try to be as conservative as possible. But it is part of our culture now: we have all become avatars." [Guardian UK]
