50 Insanely Gorgeous Nature Tattoos. Photographer Tests the Definition of Beauty by Constructing Symmetrical Faces. With Both Sides Of, New York City based photographer Alex John Beck tests our definition of beauty.

Photographer Tests the Definition of Beauty by Constructing Symmetrical Faces

Inspired by the theory that symmetrical faces are the most attractive, the artist constructs a pair of entirely symmetrical portraits drawn from a single visage, one made from the model’s lefthand side and its mirror reflection and the other from the right half. By definition, these uncanny faces each represent the height of physical perfection. When confronted with Beck’s images, we might try to construct the actual human face, splicing the two halves together in our mind’s eye. Anna Williams Photography - PEOPLE - 20.

Captivating Portraits Taken in a Small Indian Village Where Girls Rule the World

Made up of only 92 dwellings in the East Khasi Hills, the town uniquely operates as a matrilinear society, each family’s lineage traced through the surname of the wife instead of the husband. The result is a culture where female descendants are most crucial to the continuing bloodline and the youngest daughter inherits all family property. Fascinated by this rare singularity, Klüppel spent 6 months with the Mawlynnong women to create Mädchenland (Kingdom of Girls). Along with the privilege of carrying the family name, girls are expected to take on many responsibilities at a very young age, often caring for 3 generations under one roof. As early as 8 years old, Mawlynnong females can run the entire household and tend to their younger siblings single handed.

What began as a hobby quickly became a passion, and has led me to a successful career as photographer that I count myself blessed to enjoy. Young girl who’s best friends with African wildlife.

Young girl who’s best friends with African wildlife

The young girl grew up in the African desert and developed an uncommon bond with many untamed animals including a 28-year old African elephant named Abu, a leopard nicknamed J&B, lion cubs, giraffes, an Ostrich, a mongoose, crocodiles, a baby zebra, a cheetah, giant bullfrogs, and even a snake. Africa was her home for many years and Tippi became friends with the ferocious animals and tribespeople of Namibia. As a young child, the French girl said, “I don’t have friends here.

Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends.” Iain Macarthur. Artist Bio Born in 1986 in Swindon, England.

Photos Of Nude Dancers Show A Very Different Side Of The Human Body (NSFW) There is no denying the natural beauty of a dancer's body. Like finely tuned mechanisms programmed to seamlessly bend, twist and twirl, the contortionists' bodies taken on positions that may not be innately appealing. Neatly stacked flaps of skin overlap, toes curl as the muscles of a leg bulge and limbs protrude forward in ways we didn't think possible, yet these feats of flexibility amount to something inexplicably gorgeous.
