About this title


Peter Manik and Alane Deviare have collaborated to create a wonderful collection of photographs that combine 2 seemingly opposite concepts: glamour and horror. They started by synthesizing Alane’s beauty, acting skills and modeling skills with Peter’s artistic and photographic skills. Then they added a generous portion of each of their imaginations, and finally a dollop of each of their senses of humor. The result is their new book: GlamourHorror. While combining glamour and horror is not a totally new concept (witness how many people have become practically obsessed with sexy movies and stories about vampires), Peter and Alane have attempted to give it a unique and fresh look. They feel that beauty and perfection is a universal desire - in great part because the media hypnotizes us with glamorous images, and keeps us hungry for an unreachable ideal. They wanted to challenge this perfection, by injecting gross horror into otherwise beautiful images, to question the concept of glamour. Our perception filters beauty - what is alluring to one person may repulse another. The standards of attractiveness vary across cultures and religions, it even mutates within ourselves. Peter and Alane encourage you to take a look at these images and think about your own contrasting beliefs about idealistic beauty. Perhaps you too will find that beauty is, in fact, in the eye of the beholder.
