London based photographer Brock Elbank released his series called “Freckles” in 2015. Throughout the series, Elbank captures men, women, and children of all hair colors and nationalities and their gorgeous freckles. He also highlights many natural redheads from different backgrounds and nationalities. This signifies that redheads do not always fit the stereotypical mold of pale skin, freckles, and from Irish/Scottish backgrounds.
“I’ve always loved freckles,” Elbank told Bored Panda in 2016. “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 have grown to live with them or even like them in adulthood.”
“One subject I shot in September for the series spent a good three to four hours with me after the portrait, talking about how they felt as a kid, bullied, rejected at school for their appearance, which really shocked me as I found this individual amazing-looking.”
Absolutely brilliant, right? Rock it like a Redhead!
