What is your definition of beauty?
Despite the universal standard, beauty still varies within different cultures throughout the world. And to find out what it means to be beautiful in each corner of the planet, American journalist and photographer Esther Honig decided to transform herself.
In her project “Before and After”, she sent a picture of herself to different digital designers, requesting them to use Photoshop to make her more beautiful according to local standards. From professional to amateurs, 40 people from 25 countries had the chance to make her more “beautiful”.
