"I’ve always loved freckles," said Elbank. "What I find interesting about individual characters that I have been fortunate enough to photograph is that many have struggled with their freckles since their infancy and either hated them, or grown to live with them or even like them in adulthood."

"One subject I shot in September for the series spent a good three to four hours with me after the portrait, talking about how they felt as a kid, bullied, rejected at school for their appearance, which really shocked me as I found this individual amazing-looking."

High use of contrast and possibly high def, Like the face but it would be even prettier in a natural setting and natural background as motive, ofc all photographers are different

She reminds me of a fairy. A feisty woodland fairy.
