InTouch: Zahara Mystery Child Of Evil

Intouch Germany reveals the truth about “Bennifer” (a cool way of talking about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.) Gossip magazines never alter the images they show, providing proof that the couple’s youngest child, Zahara, has an evil twin.

I’m sure that some of you think this evil twin theory is ridiculous, and that the child is, in fact, from an evil alternate universe. Unfortunately we can’t prove this either way as she is hiding the evil goatee that she probably has.

Maybe Brad and Angelina clone their kids to keep the real ones out of the spotlight, and this picture was taken when they’d just picked up the new clone? By R

IPS: Does This Make My Bottom Look Disastrous?

The mission of the image in the context of marketing a medical procedure is usually to imbue confidence and value in the mind of the consumer. In rarer cases, images can be used to convey a dread sense of profound incompetence, a terrible feeling that something is very wrong, and that a long slow descent into a hellish nightmare of pain and regret awaits. Ask your marketing adviser which strategy would work best for you.

Daily Fail: People Who Live In Glass Houses

In another scandal to rock the world outside of the Daily Mail, indignation about inept Photoshoping has spilled over into an ugly battle between [please fill in details, I have no idea what this is about].

In a torrent of cliches, Photoshop has become a cruel bagel of opportunity for editors who all too frequently want to have their cake and not face the consequences. Albatross.

“I have no clue how Photoshop works but I use it anyway” said Daily Fail graphic designer Nigel Bottomly, who asked not to be named for fear of retribution.

Most Photoshoppers have strategies to draw attention away from problem areas. For example, if I was retouching this I would have added huge flames to the mom’s hair, so as to distract attention from her daughter’s bizarre and unfeasibly long arms.

PhotoHouse USA: Chapectomy

PhotoHouse USA PSD
In a breathless deconstruction of the trite family self-portrait, USA PhotoHouse deftly excises the phallocentric father figure, leaving a single hand to signify – with profound semiotic irony – the hidden hand of capitalism. The camera is bereft of any screen or viewfinder in a de facto refutation of the omnipresent panopticon of male gaze, while the child points aimlessly out of the savaged image in a cathartic denunciation of the testosterone-poisoned concept of understanding directions. Marvellous.
