What would our beloved Hollywood stars look like without all their glamour? We’ve seen some accidental shots of girls with no make-up or guys with a massive hangover, but a New York artist Danny Evans decided to take it a step further and take away the whole lifestyle that makes the superstars look so polished. In his photo series Celebrities Make Under Danny photoshops famous actors and singers to get a reversed effect – see them as ordinary people.
“It was a reaction to the insanely over-retouched photos of celebrities that are everywhere,” says the artist. The series started back in 2006: reacting to a crazy over-exposure of Paris Hilton, Danny photoshopped some images by putting her face on random pictures. Eventually it evolved into visualisations of celebrities without their personal trainers, stylists and dietist. Danny says the feedback from the celebs he targets has been positive so far!
