Women’s imperfection

“The beauty is that square inch of skin that we see when we wake up next to our love.”     Inspired by this sentence of James Ballard, Jocelyn Bain Hogg, a british photographer, has collected an intimate gallery of imperfect women in ten years.  For the first time we have an inquiry about the beauty of imperfection female, close-up details and habitual gestures: stains, nose, gums, dark circles, minds and hair. With the project “ Muse” Bain Hogg took the details of ordinary women in his life: friends, family, coworkers. Portraits without pretense, manipulation or photoshop. The rediscovery of imperfection is an invitation to travel. In Italy, the beautiful girls today are beautiful all the same. The newspapers list the new and stupid surgery: create dimples in the cheeks, harmonizing the length of the toes, transplant the iris.  The photos of “Muse” portray defects but also the quirks, habits, habits of daily women, as those of which it is worth falling in love. “Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack everywhere, that’s how the light comes.” Leonard Cohen
