Lond-based photographer Brock Elbank is on a journey to photograph 150 freckled people for his next exhibition in 2017. He wants to celebrate beauty and, since mid-2015, he has succeeded with 90 striking portraits.

"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." If you want to be featured, you can still contact him!

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

I have to say I have not seen many people with freckles, & that's worth celebrating being a person with freckles, I would not forget your face with all your life written on it
