Illustrations explore our obsession with perfection

Illustrations explore our obsession with perfection

In a series of photographs that unitize illustrations, artist Maria Jo Cabezas brings awareness to our culture’s obsession with the “perfect” body.

Each photo shows a different form of body obsession, including anorexia and over exercise. By showing an illustration of the “ideal body” placed beside a “normal” body, it highlights obsession that so many have.

“I made this set of artwork combining illustration and photography to enlighten the consequences of the obsession with beauty. It took me four months between investigation, illustration, and photo shoot to complete a total of twenty pieces.” she said.
