The project was titled “Before and After“. The project was based on a basic question: “How To Compare Standards Of Women’s Beauty World-wide?”.
For her project, she could have simply bought a magazine or watched some films, but instead she decided to do an experiment.
Esther’s solution was out of the box: She sent a portrait photo of herself to freelance artists in countries around the world with one request – to make her “beautiful.”
For this She found aroung 40 artists – a mix of amateurs and professionals – from dozens of countries. Some went all-out glam, lightening her skin, changing the shape of her eyes, and giving her quite the makeup job.
Which photo matches your own personal definition of beauty? Take a look.
The images Honig has collected so far are interesting as individual images, a unique portrait of the standards of beauty in each country.
She has mentioned on her blog : “What I’ve learned from the project is this: Photoshop [may] allow us to achieve our unobtainable standards of beauty, but when we compare those standards on a global scale, achieving the ideal remains all the more illusive.”
Please share this post with your friends to show them this innovative experiment.
