The Smile Project


We love this story about the Smile Project that was shared with us from Bored Panda.

Mehmet Genç is a Turkish travel photographer who goes by the name of Rotasiz Seyyah (roughly translated as “nomad without a route”). His pictures are stunning but one project in particular will really put a smile on your face. He calls it “You Are So Beautiful” and the idea is simple. Genç tells the people he meets on his travels that they’re beautiful and then captures their responses on film. And as you can see from the pictures below, his subjects often react in the sweetest of ways.

So in your own little world, when you get the opportunity, be kind, have your own Smile Project, tell someone they are beautiful. You will light up their face and make their day.

In a tribute to Shanghai, the city that has been home to the founders, Stuart & Lau has made this short film to celebrate the latest addition to their collection, the Constant Briefcase.
