“In a pluralized world where diversity prevails, there is no room for a single pattern of beauty. Time and history record a constant mutation of beauty standards. The vision of a globalized world has paradoxically brought the growing need for the individual to be recognized for his unique identity. And beauty patterns have multiplied. Above all, the concept of beauty has come to have several meanings. Beauty is more and more far from perfect aesthetic standards and more and more close to measures of well-being, attitude, and uniqueness.
And in this context, the photographer’s look no longer searches for the photo that fits this or that follows a specific pattern of beauty. The quest is for the opportunity to let the individual unfold through the camera lens. It does not matter how the world wants us to be seen. What matters is (re) discovering how we are viewed by ourselves and to eventually be surprised by a particular kind of beauty sometimes ignored. Far more than undressing the body, the intention is to undress the beauty of the human soul.” – Renata de Moraes
