Photographer measures brain waves to gauge beauty ideals

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Some people would want to tweak their visage to attain their version of perfection – a slimmer jawline here, a nipped nose there.

It is an issue that was addressed by photographer Scott Chasserot in his Original/Ideal project.

People were photographed bare-faced and their portraits were then manipulated multiple times with features morphed.

Each person was then shown the images while connected to an EEG headset. The headset recorded their brain waves as they glanced at each image.

The data claims to show which version of themselves each person found to be ideal.

The images can be seen below, with the original on the left and the “ideal” on the right.
