In This Skin

March 10th, 2015

Artist Natalie McComas was recently inducted into VSCO’s Artist Initiative to take photos of people with rare skin defects:

When Natalie first met Patience Hodgson (of the Australian indie-rock band, The Grates), who later became the inaugural subject of her “In This Skin” project, she saw Patience’s port-wine birthmark as something really beautiful. “Her perspective of it, and herself, was a fresh, honest, and simple one,” Natalie remembers. Out of their conversation, the photo series was born. “I find it‘s the people around me and what‘s going on in their lives that directly impact and generate the ideas for my documentary work.”

You can follow along on Natalie’s VSCO Cam Grid and her web site.
