The fifteenth of December, 2010: Miss Atom, and Persian rhinoplasties

Newcastle’s lovely Side photographic gallery is currently home to Zed Nelson‘s exhibition Love Me. It’s all about the beauty industry, and around 96 per cent of it is quite disturbing. Have a look.

Did you know that more nose-jobs are performed in Iran than in any other country in the world? Or that Rochester has an under-18s nightclub called Amadeus? Or that the US magazine Men’s Health hasn’t featured a man with an unwaxed chest on its cover since 1995? NB I may have misremembered these interesting facts, so they might be slightly incorrect. But it’s certainly true that, if they were to be wholly correct, they would make you go: ‘Oh! Bah.’
