Photographer // Fritz Liedtke

While many people view freckles as an aberration or blemish, my response is the opposite. I find them enchanting, unique, even exotic. More than once, while photographing for this series, a model thanked me for making something beautiful out of what they often viewed as a flaw.—Fritz Liedtke

Whether capturing the awkwardness of adolescence, life on a coffee farm, or fairytale tableaus set in fire-scorched forests, the work of Portland-based photographer Fritz Liedtke tends towards a dreamy grace tinged with an unremitting gaze.
