Publisher's Description

Casting brings to light some of the problems of modern aesthetics in the world of fashion photography. Instagram filters, perfect photoshopped skin, and deep image manipulation are the social media expectations of our day. These impossible beauty standards are changing our vision of society and, in particular, of women in our society, creating a digital vision far removed from reality. 

The photographs used for this project do not have any digital retouching or any other type of alteration. The intent is to highlight a more sincere way of seeing the human form. The atmospheres are not celebratory and the photographs do not further enhance the subjects. Casting is a container for the natural beauty of the human body. 

In Bangkok, where Mattia Baldi has lived for years, beauty standards are a complicated and artificial matter. This book aims to restore our sense of beauty, the female form, and photography so as to revise our current, harmful, standards.
