1000 Faces

Back in July 2010 I posted a video here titled The Beauty of Different. The video was put out to promote Karen Walrond’s book of the same title.

Walrond is an award winning photographer and I enjoy her Chookooloonks website so much I put one of her “You Are Beautiful” buttons up on my sidebar. I love it!

One of my favorite things on her site in the 1000 Faces Project. She takes the most amazing portraits and somehow…every one of them is beautiful. These are real people, not airbrushed supermodels. And yet. And because of that, they are so very gorgeous.

Looking through the faces, I wondered…how does she do it? How does she capture the beauty, really pull it out…in each person? And then it hit me. She loves them. What we are seeing in the photos is love reflected back to her.

Looking at the faces makes me feel so connected to the beauty in everyone. It makes me look at people differently.

Look out at the world with love and get it back. So simple.

So powerful.
