"The Ethnic Origins of Beauty" Proves All Women Around The World Are Beautiful!


The Non-profit project ’The Ethnic Origins of Beauty’ started in 2012. The project is developed by Russian photographer, writer and photojournalist Natalia Ivanova. She lives and works in France.

Natalia photographed 39 different ethnic origins from 4 continents and 15 countries. She aimed to indicate that all women of the world are equally precious and special. Nevertheless, there are much more ethnic origins around the world that couldn't be included in this project. 

The project is still ongoing and there will be other women that will be included. The selection criteria was simple. 

1- The participant should inherit the origins from both parents. 

2- The participant should carry the same ethnic origins for at least 3 generations. 

3- The participant should be between 18-30 years old.

The project reached its goal by stating that all women around the world are beautiful and ethnic differences are a part of this life.
