People who have a birthmark get all sorts of strange questions about what they are and where they came from. Linda Hansen, a photographer from Copenhagen recently embarked on a photo series called “Nevus Flammeus.” This type of birthmark is also called a port wine stain.
They range in size and the amount of pigment, but each is beautiful in its own way. Hansen decided to do her project to allow people to look at port wine stains without appearing rude. She says it gives people the chance to see the person behind the birthmark without having to stare at the actual person.
Her hope is that people will see that a birthmark is part of a person, but doesn’t define who they are.
