Classic Beauty: Defined By Each Culture (Video)


Classic Beauty: Defined By Each Culture (Video)

We have known all along that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder.' But consider that our judgments about whom is beautiful is based in the beholder's ethnicity.

Photographer and photojournalist Natalia Ivanova has begun an ambitious project she calls "The Ethnic Origins of Beauty," or Les origines de la beauté. She seeks out the ideal natural beauty that symbolizes every ethnicity, and photographs them in an identical position. The 100s of photos she has taken show the wide diversity that humans consider to be the classic beauty.

So this project pretty much makes it plain: What I (and people with whom I share ethnic background) have a different point of view when it comes to judging beauty. The Eye Candy posted here might be drastically different if someone from another culture starts selecting the Honeyz. How about that.
