A Photographer Takes Close-Up Photos of Women From Different Ethnic Groups to Show the Unique Beauty of Every Nation

Russian photographer, journalist, and producer Natalia Ivanova decided to demonstrate the ethnic diversity of humanity to the world and came up with a large-scale project The Ethnic Origins Of Beauty. Women of different ethnic groups became its heroines. They posed for portraits, and also gave interviews in which they talked about their people, culture, and traditions. Later, these videos will become part of a documentary series, each episode of which will be dedicated to a different ethnic group.

At Bright Side, we were impressed by the strength and deep meaning of the portraits of The Ethnic Origins Of Beauty. We would like you to have a look at some photos from this project.
