’s vibrant works revolve around her self-portraits, celebrating the chiseled beauty of freckles sprinkled all over the contours of her face.
The artist photographs her portraits submerged in water, her prominent, sharp nose, her dreamy eyes the focal point, her face holding the burden of many untold stories buried deep within her, all waiting to be unfolded. You could almost feel the thorns of pain haunting Luxton, her face an open book. The vivid colors she uses in her photographs is juxtaposition against the pale colors of her porcelain skin, her brown freckles making a bold statement against conformist, homogeneous beauty standards. “My photography is generally centered on the exploration of ‘self’, in the form of expression, transition, transformation and physicality,” says Luxton.
Luxton received her degree in Fine Art from University of London and her ethereal photography can be viewed on Instagram.
