This picture is called Kate Moss by Chuck Close in 2003. It is a Daguerreotype. The daguerreotype shows a very detailed representation and that is why this what is called in the book a paradox of perception. I picked this picture for that reason. It is because we are so use to seeing Kate Moss as a perfect skinned beautiful fashion icon. In this picture it shows every flaw on her face and the roughness of skin and her many freckles. It makes her look like she is just another average girl like the rest of us instead of just a perfect picture of the icon like in a magazine. I also like how she looks like she is popping out of the background and the importance of the picture is on her face. I think it is very beautiful because it does show all of her flaws.
