Beautiful Mutants







I just ordered this amazing book from Amazon today and can't wait to see it up close and in person! Mark Mothersbaugh is one of the founding members of the group Devo and an all around talented person. This book is a collection of "images pulled from man's past... then corrected into sickeningly beautiful beings. A study of humans via symmetry using photos both recent & vintage." I love this unique twist on using old photos like the ones that I love so much.

Unique way of seeing things. Like a funhouse mirror. I would still like to see them unaltered too. The little babe in the bunny ears suit is so cute.

Hi Cheryl,

What a creative and strangely beautiful medium. We have a photo booth feature on the mac that allows you to take distorted pictures of yourself. It's amazing how much time we spend using this feature, especially the kids!:) I am so behind in posting. Hope you had a good weekend. Hugs, Amy
