Yes, you can. The perception of beauty is significantly different from one culture to another. That is why it is so important to show the beauty of the Indigenous People the way they are, not the way Westerners think they should be.

Alexander Khimushin is a world-class master of Indigenous Peoples artistic photo portraiture. Through his portraits, he shows the world the true beauty of Indigenous People and their traditional cultures. Many Indigenous young ladies he photographed for The World in Faces during his travels have since won beauty competitions on regional and national levels because of his photos.

Are you a young Indigenous lady who would like to present her ethnic group in The World in Faces photo project? Why not try? Drop Alexander a line.
