Sprouting Heads? — Photoshop Ruse

This morning while going through Pinterest (I can’t seem to get enough of that site, now that I’m detoxing from Facebook) and I I came across this picture of a woman apparently photoshopped to be carrying 9 babies. 

women, photoshop, bad photoshopping

The photo quickly becomes eerie if you look closely at the babies.

The photo was posted to what seems a Polish version of Pinterest. The kid’s face has been replicated 9 times and spread around the person’s clothes. The only “smart” thing the editor did was to change angles and hide the kid’s face to different degrees to give a “genuine” feel. 

Seems like it worked.

I reckon since the photo was of an African, and we are so used to seeing stereotyped versions of pictures coming out of certain nations, the editor got away with it.
