Make-up Free Photo Series Features Acne and Rosacea

Recommended Posts

A new photo series is rejecting a culture of ‘perfect’ pictures and airbrushing by celebrating women with common skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema. Sophie Harris-Taylor’s project Epidermis is inspired by her own experience of being a young woman with severe acne, which left her struggling with self-confidence and acceptance. In Epidermis, twelve women are shown barefaced in unretouched images, some of who had never left the house before without their make-up on. Harris-Taylor says she deliberately shot it in the style of a beauty editorial shoot: “I wanted it to be seen as a beauty shoot first and an exploration of skin second.” With Epidermis, she hopes to make our perception of beauty less homogenised. Here, Harris-Taylor speaks to i about her series.
