Woman Had Her Face Photoshopped In More Than 25 Countries To Compare Their own Beauty Standards


U. S. -based journalist plus photographer Esther Honig came up with an interesting photo project that answers a hard question in an ingenious way – how can we compare standards associated with women’ s beauty world-wide?

Honig’ s solution was brilliantly simple: she sent the portrait photo of herself to freelance Photoshoppers in countries all over the world with one request – in making her “beautiful. ” Each Photoshopper, be they a professional or an amateur, took their own spin on the assignment, giving Honig (and us) a glimpse at what at least one person in each of these countries considers to be beautiful. Honig’ s encounter subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) shifts, changing form and color as it travels around the world.
