Searching for the term “beauty” on GettyImages.com result in series of young white women touching their faces with delicate hands. My analysis of these photographs is an enquiry to what is here referred as ‘beauty’. The stock imagery company adapts its products to the demand of the cosmetic market and therefore reflects traditional idealisation of hygiene, health and self-care. I replicated the imagery with ceramic reproductions of traditional statues and beauty merchandising props. ⤿2014
