A kind word to a stranger can mean a world of difference. We are so busy and caught up in our everyday tasks that we often forget to acknowledge those around us. Still, giving someone a genuine, heartfelt compliment will win over hearts instantly. And with magazine ads, billboards, and commercials, women in particular often feel the pressure of just not being pretty enough.
When the standard of beauty has been set, very few can actually meet those unrealistic benchmarks. Mehmet Genç aka Rotasiz Seyyah has made it his mission to tell the women he meets on his travels they are beautiful. The photographer captures the before and after of his subjects receiving such a compliment. The *You Are So Beautiful* series has him visiting countries like the Amazon in Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, and Belize.
