Beauty pursues us with a condescending eye: from television screens to magazines, from shop windows to billboards, there is hardly a face or figure that hasn’t been cut out, smoothed and reinvented to haunt us with an increasingly unattainable paradigm of physical beauty . In Singular Beauty, Cara Phillips explores the reassuring environments and threatening tools of cosmetic surgery. The publication provides a voyeuristic view into the pristine temples of physical transformation, while offering a profound critique of our culture of narcissism.
