You’re Not As Ugly As You Think And This Guy Will Prove it To You!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Australian photographer Sebastian Petrovski firmly believes that. Sebastian says: “”Perception is my reality and this is where I am forever trapped. Or am I free?” Throughout high school, Sebastian was one of those teenagers who was very self conscious of his looks and often times depressed. He decided to create a series of philosophical photographs that would show how we perceive beauty.

These next photographs show pairs of people that haven’t been altered in any way (no makeup, photo shop, etc), except for lighting. Looking at these photographs, you’ll notice a huge change in their appearance and it’s simply astounding.
