I have a bone to pick with T: The New York Times Style Magazine. They posted a bunch of stunning black-and-white pics from the new photography book “Freckles” by Reto Caduff, and now I’m mad at them for making me want to get yet another coffee-table tome that I don’t need. Thanks a lot, guys!
As the title of the book so directly implies, it’s filled with images of freckle-faced women in all their natural glory. Caduff told T Magazine that that he wanted to showcase the beauty of freckles because at photo shoots he’s worked on, they often get masked with makeup or they’re retouched out later. And that, people, is annoying. It’s one thing to erase something like a pimple or dark undereye circles, but freckles aren’t flaws that need to be hidden. They’re beautiful! Bravo to Caduff for celebrating a feature that’s so unique–we could use more confidence-boosting projects like this in the world. Hey, Caduff, if you’re reading this, how about a sequel about gap teeth? Seriously, it could be cool. Just think about it.
Anyway, T’s post inspired me to
obsess for hours look at shots of freckles on Pinterest. Take a look at my favorites, but know that you miiiight be tempted to draw tiny little dots on your face with a brow pencil when you’re done.
