With a foreword from Detox herself Phillip Toledano describes the subjects of his new photography book, as “the vanguard of human-induced evolution,” as he depicts those who have gone to plastic surgical extremes as Grecian deities, draped and garlanded [sometimes in post-surgical bandages], as he captures them from their ‘best’ side:

“When we remake ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?” Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture?”

Jump in to see a collection of his most beautiful and extreme photographs, definitely NSFW, unless you were the one who did the bodily reconstructions in the first place, in which case CHECK IT OUT, great work hon, very au naturel..such subtle beauty you done!

    Honestly, these images remind me of the death photography of the 19th Century. Some of these people just look like empty husks that might have a soul rattling around somewhere inside. There seems to be a visible disconnect between these people and their bodies and photography does not flatter them at all. I’ve seen more life-like figures at Madame Tussaud’s.
