Just found this answer on wiki answers but as it is wiki don't take it as 100% correct:

Usually, it is an optical illusion caused by straight-on lighting coming from the photographer's position (the most common use). A photograph is a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional subject, and this type of light has a tendency to "flatten" the subject and reduce the illusion of depth. However, the apparent width does not change, tending to make the subject look bulkier.
There is also a psychological aspect that may come into play at the same time. Even though we may occasionally view ourselves in a mirror (which appears 3-D), we may appear less flattering in the moment a picture is taken because we are more critical of the entire 2 dimensional image of us.

thats interesting.. i suppose thats how you look better from different angles in pictures!

guess so and proper photographers can use light to create definition to parts of our bodies mask flaws and even use tricks to hide wrinkles and stuff very clever really xxxx
