Mini Moodboard: Altar/Alter

Swiss photographer Cyril Porchet's captures a beautiful series of opulent Baroque altars throughout Spain, Austria and Germany. According to Porchet, his intention was to explore the seductive power of display. The same could be said for those who undergo cosmetic surgery, such as Phillip Toledano's subjects from his book "A New Kind of Beauty." With the series, Toledano considers if we are creating an amalgam of surgery, art and popular culture. Perhaps the intentions are the same.
