THE MP - PROJECT, 2016
A confrontation of a raw digital photographic
portrait with a digital reworked photographic portrait.
On the basis of several magazine covers, such as ELLE, MAXIM, W MAGAZINE etc. I photoshopped the raw portraits of communication design study colleagues from my ERASMUS semester in Porto, Portugal, to contrast reality with an illusion that is evoked by media. The principal purpose was to create an exchange of thoughts and a discussion about our responsibility as (becoming) designers. The title "MP" is a homonym for megapixel and/or manipulator describing the digital field of photography by megapixels and the designer as
the person in control of manipulating them.
