Overview

A New Kind Of Beauty by Phillip Toledano

“But the impact of these faces and the bodies is jarring, even alienating. The
sitters’ motivations for these enormous changes are undoubtedly personal and
deeply felt, but the enormity of that transgressive action challenges us as the
viewer to sort out our own ideas about beauty and gender.”—W.M. Hunt

Are we at a point in history where we are beginning to define not only our own concept of beauty, but of physicality itself? What choices do we make? Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand?

Phillip Toledano lives and works in New York City. He has published three monographs—the most recent, Days With My Father, was received with critical acclaim.
