feature: brooklyn-based photographer hugh morris captures the magic of black freckled beauty in editorial series

August 12, 2016

For the past 13 months, Brooklyn-based photographer Hugh Morris has been working on this gorgeous, natural-face beauty editorial series, ‘LéFrek’, featuring freckled women of color. These striking images feature a majority of models who have had no experience in such a capacity. So far, Morris has photographed more than 50 faces and is seeking to push the project past 100. You can see ‘LéFrek’ in its entirety over here.
