Re-touching And Self Image

Cory Wade

 

"Automic Gold is queer run jewelry built on transparency and honesty.

One photo is retouched. One is raw. When the innovators behind this brand showed me the photos from our collaboration, fear rose up inside of me because I could see that they were intent on putting out photos that revealed acne and dark spots as a means of holding true to their mission statement.

When authenticity is the mission, sometimes showing up raw is the best way to say that its ok to come with imperfections. When people have negative things to say about a person’s physical appearance in it’s realest and rawest, it actually reflects on their own false standards for beauty.

That is why I think brands like Automic Gold should be uplifted. They remind me why I got into this business in the first place. You are all beautiful.. You are all worthy.. That is the truth!"
