Welcome to my photography project “Ugly Like Me”, which is dedicated to showcasing both the ugly and beautiful of each individual who takes part.
It’s always fascinated me how someone familiar to you can twist their face into an expression you’re not used to seeing them do, and for a brief moment they’re unrecognizable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I took this concept, and decided I wanted to start a series of portraits where people make the absolute ugliest face they can manage, and couple it with a second photo of them smiling naturally. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think everybody tends to be their own worst critic, and we’re often quicker to identify things we dislike about ourselves than things we’re proud of. For this reason, each participant reflects on one thing they find “Ugly” about themselves, and one thing they find attractive to accompany each photograph.
So if we’re starting with me: I hate pictures of my profile. I have a large nose and a slight slouch, so when I look at myself from the side I feel like I look like some sort of giant bird.
On the flip side, I think I have a glowing personality and a great smile, which makes it really easy for me to connect and get along with people!
