Before Photoshop

Here's something I found in a book some years ago and kept as a scan. Even before Photoshop was available it was possible to enhance the appearance of a model - although the methods were more cumbersome. I remember seeing the album Island Life - for which this was the cover picture - advertised on the London underground and marvelling at Grace Jones's physique. It seems that she wasn't quite as I'd been led to believe. (We were less aware, if not completely unaware, of what was going on back then.)

The Concept

The Reality

The Reconstruction

The Outcome
