UV portrait

UV portrait

The faces in these images are shot using ultraviolet photography that reveals every sun spot, freckle and speck of pigmentation lurking beneath the surface of the subjects’ skin. It’s a technique used by dermatologists to reveal the “future” skin of their patients before they flog them expensive cosmetic treatments, despite the fact there is no guarantee that this invisible damage will ever materialise. Portraits like this – patients’ eyes closed, as if in prayer, to protect against the UV light – often fill the walls of skincare professionals’ offices, which Phillips photographed for a previous project.
