A BOOK ON….FRECKLES

Swiss photographer Reto Caduff celebrates the beauty of girls with freckles in a limited edition photography book called “Freckles.” The book features fifty portraits of young women with various amounts of freckles with no make-up artist involved. Photographed in natural light, the gorgeous images are printed in toned black and white.

In the words of the author:

“We live in strange times: I noticed that often in today’s photography, models with freckles have them either covered by make up or removed in post production. Just search for freckles online and most results are for ways to get rid of them. I want to pay homage to these spots that make a face so unique and fascinating.”

The book’s foreword is written by dermatologist and professor Jonathan Rees who is credited in discovering the gene MC1R, responsible for freckles.
