Skin-Imperfection Portraits
Cara Phillips' Ultraviolet Beauties Series Focuses on Blemishes

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jun 14, 12

The marks speckling the faces of each subject in the Ultraviolet Beauties photo series aren’t freckles or even splattered paint. Instead, they are imperfections of the skin that has been highlighted by an ultraviolet light, hence the title of the portrait photoshoot. Some might shudder at the sight of so many undetected blemishes, but they are quite common, as the series shows.

The Ultraviolet Beauties photo series was conceived and captured by photographer Cara Phillips. Born in Detroit and based in Brooklyn, Phillips transitioned from model to makeup artist and finally photography. Having immersed herself in the beauty industry in one form or another, the Ultraviolet Beauties photo series is a natural extension of her experience and expertise. Through it, she shows that no one is perfect and that similarities bound even on the surface of the skin.
