Back to the bone with Mugler retouch
Happy Finish worked with top fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco on these images for Mugler’s ‘Anatomy of Change’ campaign.
Featuring model, Rick Genest, also known as “Zombie Boy” the campaign images are the brainchild of creative director Nicola Formichetti, who is also stylist to the one and only Lady Gaga.
Rick, who is covered head to foot in anatomical tattoos featuring bones and muscle structures, provided retouch artist Chris Roome with an unusual beauty retouch. “To be a good retoucher it is useful to have a good understanding of the human physique, however this is a first to retouch skin that represents the anatomical form!”
These stunning black and white images also ran as part of a larger campaign that included an online video launch featuring an exclusive track from Lady Gaga’s album ‘Born this Way’.
