Simon Duhamel neutralises skin tones to reveal the truth beneath

In his series Skintonephotographer Simon Duhamel uses coloured lighting to subtract skin tones from his portraits to reveal our ‘physiognomy’, or ‘true difference’ as Simon puts it. Using the term in a more abstract context (physiognomy is a term more associated with quackery such as phrenology), Simon’s portraits allow us to focus on the structure and geometry of the face across different ethnicities. Personally, I just find the waxy, synthetic rendering captivating.
