Got freckles? Photography project seeks to celebrate hottest beauty trend.

Brock Elbank has 90 images already showing the beauty of the skin marks which some feel are a curse – but he wants more subjects.

FrecklesBeautiful skin: The images not only show the beauty of freckles but also make them look exotic

Anyone who grew up with freckles may have mixed feelings about them, but one photographer’s launched a positive project to celebrate them.

Brock Elbank has put together a set of beautifully shot portraits which not only show the beauty of freckles but also make them look exotic.

Those who cursed the light brown marks on their skin as children or spent time with a scrubbing brush trying to get rid of them may be flattered to see that each and every freckled face looks stunning.

“What I find interesting about individual characters that I have been fortunate enough to photograph is that many have struggled with their freckles since their infancy and either hated them, or grown to live with them or even like them in adulthood,” Elbank told Buzzfeed.

The London-based photographer says he was inspired to start the project by the son of a friend, but he’s not done yet.¬†Although 90 portraits have been collected so far, he plans to take a total 150 portraits before exhibiting his work in 2017.
