Iride Fontana: just beauty, no Photoshop

Iride Fontana

Iride came third in the Miss Italia in the World 2011 beauty contest

Iride Fontana is a 21 year old woman from Barcelona, Spain. She is just starting a career in modeling and acting. This portrait is not retouched. I personally don’t like to use Photoshop for retouching portraits and I want to take a stand against extreme Photoshop retouching in advertisements and on the covers of magazines.

Today’s unrealistic idea of what beauty is means that young girls are under even more pressure now than they were a couple of years ago. Airbrushing means that adverts contain completely unattainable and perfect images that no one can live up to in real life. We need to help protect our younger generations from these pressures and we need to make a start by banning airbrushing in adverts aimed at them. I also come from a school of thought that finds beauty in real things. I think imperfection is beautiful.

and please, let me know your opinion about it, Thanks
