No longer the poor relative

Photographs, no matter how altered or retouched, will always have some association with reality and by association truth. I like to think of them (Fashion Illustrations) as prose poems and having more fictional narratives.  They are more obviously filtered through an individual vision than photos. Illustration lives on, but in the position of a poor relative

The work of Julie Verhoeven is indicative of the cosmetic design and illustration crossover.
I find it interesting that the links between fashion illustration and fashion styling are becoming closer,  and that it is in the arena of cosmetic alteration that illustrators are beginning to define a new vehicle of exploration.
