Shaune Harrison - The Making Of The Prosthetic

 

The Prosthetic: Working With Shaune Harrison

 

Over a series of months, world renowned make-up artist Shaune Harrison created a prosthetic tumour that covered one side of Leigh de Vries's face, creating in physicality the distorted self she had perceived. 

Leigh chose the facial tumour as she felt this had the level of distortion that matched her own thoughts and to make sure that on the day Leigh would be able to really feel into the distorted perception she has of herself.
