Piercing the Glamorous Surfaces of Pop Photography by Daniele Buetti

Swiss artist Daniele Buetti addresses the importance of sex appeal, death, the value of art, and much more in his perforated light box photos. Buetti’s photo-scarifications, light box photographs, and installations are a reaction to our market-driven consumer world and pop culture perfectionism. These works incorporate photos of fashion icons such as Kate Moss and other top models pierced with many holes that glow from behind. Using his piercing technique the artist carves words and questions that deface the figure in the photo but at the same time calls attention to other forms of abuse. See more after the jump!
