Besides, not only is the mere existence of freckles an enchanting story: the myths, explanatory factors – biological as well as environmental – and aesthetics. But most of all, it is without a doubt the people behind the freckles that makes this phenomenon a lovely feature worth exploring again and again.
Now, how does one create something new and different based on this natural phenomenon, still keeping a classic and pure tone? In nothing but sheer daylight, our freckled contributors have been photographed for this book. You will find the mother, daughter, model, waitress, father, son, lawyer, student, brother, sister, CEO, pensioner, businessman, cousin, grandparent and many others.
Never before has an art project encompassed such a concentrated yet playful insight into the freckled people among us. Many of them grew up hating their freckles, but later come to love them. I want to tell everyone – freckled or not – that you are beautiful precisely the way you are created, and not to bother spending time thinking otherwise. Jonas’ photos proves that simplicity and masterpieces as well as perfection and imperfection not by necessity are opposites of each other.
