    Carolina Revertera

Haut is an ongoing project started in 2018 in Berlin, Germany. It examines the limitations of the contemporary conception of beauty and naturalness. The photos, which were all taken on medium format film in natural light, give space to skin in all its various facets and appearances and thus break with the harmful idea of perfection in the 21st century. Haut questions our comprehension of aesthetics and the way beauty is presented to us on a daily basis. The beautiful draws our attention to itself, it pulls it away from ourselves for a while and makes us seem to lose ourselves in it.
