In fashion photography, presumed “defects,” such as stubble, pimples, freckles, sweat, and misapplied makeup, are digitally corrected and removed. By contrast, these perceived imperfections are #MarilynMinter’s subject, and she revels in their realness. In highlighting these raw views of the body, Minter is also reversing the centuries-long function of painting as capturing an idealized image. #prettydirtybkm
