It is usually said that taking care of oneself is a sign of respect towards other people. Seeing the prosperity of cosmetic companies, clothing industry or plastic surgery clinics, it seems like the rich have never shown more respect towards each other. Especially women. And yet, in their frantic desire to please – it is also about respecting themselves – some false notes occur sometimes. Wrinkles that no foundation can hide, an out of control bulge, invincible acne. Or simply an inappropriate outfit. Or an outrageous ostentation flirting with obscenity. Or an expression showing anything but respect…Without any contempt, Steeve Iuncker tracks down these mistakes multiplied by our customs. Wherever he goes – Cannes, New York, Geneva, or even Tirana -, he witnesses the birth of these paradoxes, playing with beauty and its quest. He sort of became the reporter without borders of our relationship with appearances. And incidentally, the columnist of a booming economy.“Seductive beauty as a weapon : the power to promote oneself better, the unspeakable goal to be bought a higher price. Win the competition. The human, social animal, eager to accept the estheticonomical definition of his body : he has to be radiant in order not to be excluded.
Fashion and surgery become a solution.”
