The photo portfolio depicts Ford’s view of a society dehumanized by the quest for physical perfection, for which the beauty world bears considerable responsibility.”We’ve become plastic, objectifying the human body…waxed and polished and buffed and shined up and manipulated,” Ford says. “And then, of course, I’m portrayed as the one doing the manipulating, the polishing, buffing, shaping, which is what I do. It’s just what we do. What the fashion industry does.”
