Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2011. 72 pp., 32 color illustrations, 14¾x11".

Publisher's Description
This is a book of portraits of people who have re-created themselves through plastic surgery.

Phillip Toledano believes that we are at the vanguard of a period of human-induced evolution. A turning point in history where we are beginning to define not only our own concept of beauty, but of physicality itself.

Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make?

Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand?

When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?
