News Reel. In 1993 Matuschka made worldwide headlines when her self-portrait entitled "Beauty out of Damage" was published on the cover of the Sunday New York Times Magazine. This photograph generated 12 awards (including a Pulitzer Prize Nomination) and subsequently "The New York Times" received an unusually high amount of letters to the editor, ranking it as one of the most controversial covers in its history. News coverage on TV was extensive and this you tube represents a cross section of programs both the artist and photograph were profiled on. By the mid 90s "Beauty Out of Damage" became one of the most published pictures in the world appearing in hundreds of international publications, books, TV shows and documentaries internationally. Ten years after "Beauty Out of Damage"'s debut, the image is still in demand, often published in scholarly and academic journals related to sociological issues on health, medicine, beauty and body image. In 2003 LIFE Magazine include this photo in a special edition entitled "100 Pictures That Changed the World." Most recently in November 2008 "Inside Edition" featured this picture to accompany a segment about Christina Applegate, an actress who underwent a double mastectomy in 2008.
