These ‘Plastic Surgery’ Photos Are The Craziest Thing We’ve Seen All Day

Ever wondered what it would be like to have the face of a supermodel? Well now you can, Hannibal-style, if you follow the lead of French photographers Bruno Metra and Laurence Jeanson, who play on concepts of identity, beauty, and otherness in their latest series of photographs by taping magazine clippings of models’ eyes, noses, and mouths to their own subjects’ barefaced visages.

The series provides a compelling visual juxtaposition between real, everyday humans and the glossy, airbrushed, lit-just-so versions we see in fashion spreads and advertisements. They’re also downright unsettling — but we can’t seem to look away.

See the photographers’ work below, and for more weird and wonderful art pieces, check out this Alexander McQueen-inspired gown made of 50,000 gummi bears and these terrifying “front heel” shoes.
