Ugly pictures….

Whilst some have it and some don’t – it is always debatable what defines beauty and what defines not so beautiful. And then of course, that opinion varies from person to person.

As for myself,  i find it rewarding to take pictures of people and portray them as beautiful as i can. Being quite the perfectionist myself, i throw out pictures that aren’t good enough in my opinion. Be it the lighting, the angle or the background. Same goes for my landscapes… I just don’t like to have people walking in them.

Having said that, i also don’t believe in photoshopping so much that it changes a person. Authenticity makes the person and is therefor beautiful in my book. The other day my friend and i came up with the idea to go out one day and take pictures of really ugly things, just to challenge ourselves and not be so idealistic about just trying to take beautiful images…

We will do that someday soon – but then i saw these photos and it made me realize: although every person is unique and beautiful in their own way – for animals that is certainly not always the case….
