Rut Mackel: The Ugly Truth

Rut Mackel's "The Ugly Truth" explores the ugliness and the beauty that exist within each of us. For the project the models were asked to hold a piece of framed clear glass and press their face against it to get various face distortions. Speaking about the project Rut said, "Face is a symbol of personal identity. It's the mirror or the mask of the self. The mirror either 'reflects' or 'distorts'. Our faces are us. Thus, facial disfigurement can be particularly distressing."
