When people walk in the sunlight, expose themselves to ultraviolet radiation (UV) for a period of time, dark spots will begin to appear on human skin. These darkened spots are usually referred to as “Photodamage”, commonly known as pigment or freckles. They are a result of combining “exposure to light” and “duration of time”, which are also basic elements of creating a photograph.
By exploring how people pursue their perfect face, from the pigment formation process to the process of whitening, this project allows people to rethink the fundamental elements of photography: Light and Time. Once the dark spots are formed, they cannot be reversed, just as time cannot be reversed. The traces of time, experiences, and history cannot be easily forgotten.
