Fake I Real Me: Corinne Mariaud


In her latest series “Fake I Real me”, Corinne Mariaud photographed 23 young women who incarnate an ideal image, and symbolize a generation consumed by the desire to possess a “perfect” body. These young women and young men young who have opted for an androgynous appearance have been doing everything since adolescence to obtain a utopian physics: through makeup they transform their faces using contouring and highlighting techniques to reshape the nose, create cheekbones, illuminate their complexions… and even undergo cosmetic surgery.
Corinne Mariaud chose her models in Singapore and Korea because this obsession with an “ideal” appearance is there pushed to the extreme. « In Seoul, South Korea, the pursuit of perfection is becoming the ultimate goal. Young women place physical beauty among the most important things in their lives”, says the artist.
