15 Jan Beautiful portraits of partial facial paralysis patients
As a cosmetic clinic we see many different faces, we see people who have partial facial paralysis who require treatment to balance facial features and relax muscle spasm. We found this series of images particularly moving.
The photographer’s intention behind the series is to not only feature people dealing with their medical afflictions and to highlight their courage, but to also present an unconventional practice in portraiture. For a style that relies heavily on exposing the face, often aligned with the symmetry of it, Sohier offers a new take on human beauty.
