The living border
We live our skin as our external material boundary thus through this we are in contact with the outside world we touch each other we show ourselves by the skin to others. We cant change our own skin cant hide of what it is. Skin flaws can greatly affect the appearance so the way how others judge and see us.
On the photographs I show people who feel comfortable in their skin. They live with two types of skin flaw affecting millions of people freckles and vitiligo. The shots were taken partially with a wet collodion process and with dry gelatine glass technique with large format camera.
Shots are taken wherein which the differences in skin color of people of different races disappear. Black and white images will look very similar in terms of skin tone.. In front of my camera, people are not objects, they are people, blessed with talent, individuality, performance, soul.
