is a collection of photographs featuring strange and unusual-looking beauty products by Latvian photographer Evija Laivina.
Evija Laivina was born in 1978 in Latvia. In the summer of 2009, Laivina arrived in Scotland where she started Contemporary Art Practice studies at the University of Highlands and Islands.
Aesthetic surgery and virtual world’s obsession with perfection is playing a key part within her research, feeding her work- photography, sculptures and installations. Laivina currently lives in Inverness and works at her studio at Inverness Creative Academy.
All the products from the series were bought on Ebay, and most items were made in China. These products promise instant cures to almost all beauty problems; they fight “problem zones” and promise to cure problems without surgical intervention. Each item visually appeals to Evija and she tried to show the relationship between beauty product and model.
