It’s so easy for us to get caught up in our own existence. We’re all so busy with work, family, home, and leisure activities that we barely notice the people around us. Do you ever even bother to look at the strangers you pass by every single day? When you do look at them, what do you do? Do you say hello? Do you smile? Do you acknowledge them at all? Simply smiling at someone can make a person’s day brighter. It’s such a simple thing to do, and most of us don’t even bother.
But, Turkish travel photographer Mehmet Genç took it one step further with his “You Are Beautiful” project. His pseudonym, Rotasiz Seyyah, roughly translates to “nomad without a route”. And, while he may not be following a particular route, he is definitely finding the perfect subjects for his creative talent.
The logic behind this project is simple – tell a random stranger that he/she is beautiful and capture their reaction. What he captured is truly beautiful. Below are some of his amazing photos.
