Disturbing Photo Contest

I came across this contest this morning and I’m not exactly sure what to think:

In this contest, your goal is to take a photo of a normal or overweight person, and turn him/her into a person that’s suffering from anorexia. The thinner, the better. Make the person almost scary, creepy thin. Good inspiration for this can be found in Stephen King’s “Thinner”.
