What is Beauty? Considering the portait



I came across this thought-provoking quote at Jezebel:

Mobility, life, is ironically the enemy of posterity — or maybe not ironically at all. Models are not valued for sparkling vivacity, but for the ability to conjure a slow-motion approximation of real emotion. What we perceive as 'beauty,' as perfection, is a face essentially devoid of expression.


--Sadie Stein



Something to ponder if you consider yourself to be less than photogenic. Read the rest of it here:

And if you do take rather unfortunate photos, hopefully you're not in the public eye:
