Becci Manson: Retouching for Annie Leibovitz and Restoring for Tsunami Victims
Becci Manson (website) is out to restore the reputation of professional retouchers everywhere. She wants to prove the work she does isn't merely corrective; it's creative too.
This short film features Becci's work with photographers such as Claire Rosen, Annie Leibovitz, and Christopher Griffith, who rely on Becci's insights on set as well as in post.
Becci also emphasizes the importance of balancing her professional obligations with charitable ones. Following the 2011 Tōhoku tsunami in Japan, she helped organize a network of volunteers to restore over 150,000 individual printed photographs.
This ongoing project with All Hands Volunteers helps disaster victims reclaim their memories, one photograph at a time.
