An 18-year-old high school student from Chicago did an incredibly heartwarming project where she told people she was photographing that they are beautiful.
In her video, she chose subjects both of whom she knew and did not know. While they posed in front of her camera, Shea Glover told them,
“I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.”
The pictures of their reactions are worth a thousand words. Glover wrote on her Youtube page:
“I conducted an independent project which evidently turned into a social experiment regarding beauty.”
“I want to clarify that my intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result.”
Her video has since been viewed nearly 800,000 times.
