Masked Beauty

Sharbat Gula's 1984 portrait by Steve McCurry for National Geographic magazine.

It all started with her being pho­tographed by Steve McCurry in 1984. Prob­a­bly one of the most famous por­trait in mod­ern times. What strikes the most are her eyes. You’re just drawn to them right away (at least I am).

I’ve been notic­ing some new por­traits that focuses on this style per se. So I fig­ured to make a list which I’ll con­stantly update as I get hypnotized.

    {you know that say­ing that beauty is in the eye of the beholder? well, that’s partly true. i’ve noticed that extremely beau­ti­ful peo­ple are thought by every­one as beau­ti­ful, and if youre just okay-looking, then some peo­ple may think you are pretty, while some peope won’t. and and every­one agrees on if some­one is unat­trac­tive. so, tech­ni­cally, beauty mostly isn’t in the eye of the beholder. know what i mean? what do you think?
