People are awesome

What is beauty? Well it depends who you ask. 
Our definition of beauty as a society varies from culture to culture, country to country and generation to generation. The perception of beauty and the way we portray it has changed a lot in the last decades. Photos by Aharon Jinjihashvili






People are awesome is a photography project that captures the beauty within everyday people. Whether they are on their way to work, going home, or if they call the streets their home.




There is beauty in grit, in pain, in sadness, in wrinkles, in curves, in scars and anything that is interesting and intriguing, Not just what is shiny, bright and colourful. People are magnificent at any time and in any way.




You are awesome. I am awesome. We are awesome. Stay awesome.
