To Retouch or Not to Retouch
Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders opted for “no retouching” in his 8×10 photographs of supermodels from the ’70s and ’80s for his show now on view at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York City. “Some of these women have electively turned back ‘time,'” he writes. “In a sense, they arrived at the studio already ‘photo-shopped.’ And that’s beyond my control. But how I shoot, my lighting, my choice of camera and lens, that’s all my decision. Blame me if you think I should have retouched and retouched and retouched, but I think these women look beautiful just the way they are.”
