I stumbled across this article about Hungarian model Eniko Mihalik today by complete accident, but I’m glad I did. The article dates back to 2008, but it’s so relevant in a time where celebrities in their mid-twenties are casted to play teenagers in films and if you’re over 30, you’re not supposed to look it. Things like this give everyday people abnormal expectations about what they’re supposed to look like at every stage in their lives. What interested me was the photo series, which appeared in Vogue Paris. The series shows images of Eniko in ten year intervals – first as a ten year old child…then all the way to a sixty year old woman. The photography was done by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and make up by Lisa Butler. Eniko was twenty years old in all of these shots. No big analysis or anything, I just wanted to show how images can be deceiving…and never underestimate what professional makeup, lighting, hair styling and facial expressions can do. These are all tricks of the trade…so you truly cannot believe everything you see! Eniko Mihalik Eniko Mihalik Eniko Mihalik Eniko Mihalik Eniko Mihalik Eniko Mihalik
