“In the vein of classic ‘beauty’ photography, Epidermis highlights and showcases the skins of women less often seen.
Normality is defined by the images we see all around us, we are led to believe all women have idealised, flawless skin – they don’t. Whether unshown or simply disguised, many women have conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema and many of these women feel a pressure to hide behind a mask of makeup, covering up what actually makes them unique.
Here these beautiful women stand unashamed of baring their skin.” – Sophie Harris-Taylor
