Phillip Toledano: "A New Kind of Beauty" (portraits of "extreme" plastic surgery)


Above: Tiana. More photos from Phillip Toledano's portrait series of people who have undergone "extreme plastic surgery" on the photographer's website. Toledano asks, "Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon's hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?" He's on Twitter. (Thanks, Susannah Breslin, via Refinery29)
