Let's just call it for what it is
why say photoshopped photos are fake, when photoshop is as close to reality as it gets?
we all have layers and we all wear masks. our thoughts are in black and white yet our emotions are overly saturated. we crop out those who we don’t want in our lives, yet add those that doesn’t belong at all. we increase the exposure of what we want to see, yet darken those that we do not. we like to sharpen details, but tend to blur out the insignificant ones.
and don’t even get me started about skin smoothening, tummy remodelling, blemish and wrinkle removal, and the ultimate one, fat removal. belo anyone?
so are we then living faked lives? or is not photohsop just an extension of our own twisted perception of reality?
