Required Reading: Frecklin’ Amazing

A while ago I came across some pictures by the Russian photographer Alexandra Bachkareva. Her luminous portraits show the natural beauty of freckles and I thought the images would be perfect for a book. Imagine my surprise when I found out a new coffee table book celebrating freckles is coming out in time for Christmas. It’s called We are Freckled, by Swedish photographer Jonas Camhagen

Inspired by these talented photographers and my own son, who is very gifted in the freckle department, I grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots. I love how the irregular patterns of the freckles come out in black/white.

Perhaps We are Freckled is the perfect gift for the dotted and spotted people in your life?
