The Eyes

Tuesday, September 13, 2011


Three brilliant German photographers created an awesome daily portrait photography project called Facity (face + city). Their aim is to show faces from different cities in the world on daily basis. Anyone can submit a photograph by following a few very strict aesthetic rules like: no smile, only natural facial expression, minimum or none make-up and no glasses or jewelry. The results - incredibly fresh and beautiful faces full of emotions. As for me, I find their eyes the most amazing and so expressive, don't you think? How comfortable do you feel in front of a camera? xo

(Thanks, Mandy)

What a great concept! How gorgeous people look without makeup - it really does make their eyes stand out.
Have a lovely week!

Really interesting. I'm going to go over and take a closer look at their website. It would be fun to try and match the faces with the city :)

I am more comfortable behind the camera.
