Paco Peregrín’s Beautiful Monster

We are loving this series from Spanish photographer Paco Peregrín. Beautiful Monster alludes to the concept of beauty, sometimes unusual, alien or even beautifully monstrous, to its ephemeral nature and point in time. Fusing hyper-real futurism with high-end beauty images, this series brings forward the proposed notion of make-up acting as a contemporary mask, either protecting the wearer like camouflage, enhancing his or her self esteem, or creating a super-ego for people.
