In today’s world, distinguishing between what’s real and what’s not has become challenging. Many images on social media or in magazines undergo some level of alteration through photo editing software, contributing to unrealistic beauty standards that can distort our perception of reality. However, some individuals are determined to challenge this trend and aim to open people’s eyes to the truth.
Two gorgeous plus-size models, Diana Sirokai and Callie Thorpe, collaborated with professional photographer Karizza to illustrate the extent of photo manipulation in the media. Diana and Callie posed for a photo, and Karizza used Photoshop to make drastic edits to their body images.
“I have to say we look amazing both ways,” Diana wrote on her Instagram post. “The purpose of this was to show you all how magazines and the media take editing to a different level. Models and celebrities do not even look like themselves in those photoshopped images. We live in such a fake world; it’s time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!”
