Woman gets her photo edited around the world
A bi-racial woman has shown how conventional standards of beauty differ across the world
A bi-racial woman has shown how conventional standards of beauty differ across the world by sending out a head shot to be altered by photoshop professionals in different countries.
U.S.-based journalist Priscilla Yuki Wilson, who is half-Japanese and half-black, sent her photo to photoshop pros in India, Albania and Macedonia, among other countries.
The Daily Mail reports that some photo editors seemed at a loss as to how to work with her unique, bi-racial features.
In some instances, her typically Asian features were erased and her African features were emphasized, the newspaper said. Some photoshop pros created entirely new dimensions, pulling her eyes closer together and reducing her jaw size for example.
“As a biracial woman there is no standard of beauty or mold that can easily fit my face,” she wrote on her blog. “I am living in a culture that's still adjusting to my kind of face.”
The experiment comes after journalist Esther Honig asked 40 people in 25 different countries to make her “look beautiful,” a project that showed beauty standards do seem to differ depending on culture.
