guilty pleasure

Mert and Marcus are my guilty pleasure photographers.
Why guilty, you may ask?

well, first of all I believe that they erase any trace of realism captured in photos...which hides any real skill (besides composition) they might have behind the lens.
Their end product is an intensely photoshopped, airbrushed, color tweaked hyper-real picture.

which I love.

I am a sucker for high contrast, juicy, saturated pics!! have you noticed?? (/sarcasm)
Miu Miu FW08 campaign:











pics from miu miu.com


I also have a soft spot for LaChapelle and Meisel... but don't tell anyone.

I actually love these photos, photoshopped or not.
