A re-creation of an old project made to meet professional expectations for "creative retouching." The past few years I wanted to focus more on technique and skill rather then the overall idea. The project direction was to develop this as if it were for a fashion magazine, with modern typography and presentation to a client with high standards of retouching.
This ongoing project is to portray society from my experience living overseas. Many of us have blank sullen faces. With these expressions viewed, I wonder what peoples true colors are hidden beneath the darkness. This project is to help unveil those emotions, those different expressions that individuals hide in plane sight.


Solution :  Clean retouching recreated in Photoshop.
