Pascal Dangin - Retoucher Extraordinaire

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to this article from The New Yorker about one of the industry's top retouchers (though from the article, it sounds like he might be the top retoucher), Pascal Dangin.

With a client list that includes American Express, Vanity Fair, W, Harper's Bazaar, Annie Leibovitz, etc., you know this guy knows his stuff.  He is the founder of Box Studios, which is a retouching house and high-end digital photography studio.

As the article states, he isn't credited in magazines, but he is the go-to guy for the fashion industry and celebrities when they want to make sure their images look their absolute best.

It's interesting to see how this one person has shaped the world of digital photography so much just by his "style" of retouching.  It's not a particular style, though.  It's his ability to conform to the needs of a particular client, and being so good at it that his style is being a master of being good.

Tell Joe I said hi, if you can find him.

that was a great article in the New Yorker & the photos that went with it...who needs us photographers to get things perfect on a shoot when he can sculpt things from cyberspace to make these "super-human" forms...soon there will be virtual fashion shows
