A close-up [anything] generally makes us cringe, even if is not that close. Lack of personal space, a portrait, a look, even a word hinting to something too close to the truth could be enough to make us walk the other way.

Pores, lines, sweat, scars.

Humanness and vulnerability exposed for everyone to see, or so we fear.

But oh, so much beauty is in every individual!
