Day Two Hundred Fifty One, September 30, 2011

the pretty faced stranger

I have always wondered about the mystery of attraction. What makes a face attractive or pretty? We all have heads with hair, a nose, eyes, ears, a chin, a temple, cheeks ,a mouth, teeth… so what are the variables that cause these features to come together in a certain way to deem a person attractive or not. What other influences are at play? Size? Proportion? Fashion?

Isn’t it strange that a face can be viewed as pretty by the majority of people who see it and another quite similar face isn’t?

This girl’s boyfriend saw me with the camera on the street in Shanghai and asked me very proudly to photograph his friend, obviously totally smitten by her glowing face.
