Peter Kun Frary

In my previous post Andrew Zuckerman took hyper-real images of nature and deleted the backgrounds to have us ponder if the image was real or not.  All of his images are real, only the background has been adjusted.   I was thrilled to find this image on Neatorama. Peter Kun Frary has done the same- but different.  He has taken the real and applied- my favorite medium to it (make-up!) and made the three-dimensional set appear as if it were a painting.  I have to give a lot of props to Mr. Frary.  I love this as a color study and a new look at a still life- thanks to the model to sat still through the display of the ‘painting.’



  1. Makeup Girl was a live makeup performance with set, stage and cloth diffusion of natural sunlight put on by Mac cosmetics at Ala Moana Center. I worked the scene (actually got sweaty! and took a 100 or so images at different angles, focal lengths, with fill flash, without fill, etc., with my EOS 50D and 17-55 2.8 lens. Not an easy task with latte and shopping bag in hand! I didn’t “photoshop” the image other than minor levels, sharpening and size tweaks. That’s actually how it looked.

  2. Thanks so much for the clarification Peter!
    Keep up the great work!
    Ms. Scully
