What is Beauty? 

 

That is the quest she decided to embark on it.

She is Sara Melotti, a former dancer who discovered to be a talented photographer.

While she was working as a fashion photography, something changed.

 

As she explains QuestForBeauty.co:

“I had been working as a fashion photographer for about 3 years when I started to feel torn inside. […]

With the kind of work I was producing, I was contributing to set very unrealistic Beauty standards that made my friends, myself and countless other women suffer”.

This feeling touched her so deeply that she couldn’t stop thinking about it.

And that’s how Sara Melotti started a QUEST FOR BEAUTY, a project for social change. She travels the world looking for an answer, or maybe just for an absolution from what she has contributed to when she was a part of the fashion machine.

She wants to cover at least 20 countries across all Continents, meeting all kind of woman, asking each woman five questions during a quick interview:

“What is the most beautiful thing in the world to you?” 

“What makes a woman beautiful?” 

“What makes a woman unbeautiful?” 

“Do you feel beautiful?”

“What is beauty?”

Here her statement:

“I think the world—especially the western one—forgot what Beauty really is. Quest For Beauty is an actual quest around the globe to rediscover the meaning of this magical word. A Journey  that, through different cultures, will hopefully remind us to find acceptance and pride in the way we look and to love ourselves for who we are. Our uniqueness is, in my opinion, the best asset we have and there’s nothing more beautiful than being our beautifully unique selves!”

The project can be a way to raise women’s voices and to find your very personal answer to what beauty means.
