Mehmet Genç who goes by the name Rotasız Seyyah (when translated means “nomad without a route”) is a Turkish travel photographer that travels around the world capturing the most stunning and mesmerizing photos. However, one project in particular that he himself did, captured the heart and attention of many.
The “You Are So Beautiful” project was the simple idea of capturing the reaction of people Rotasız meets on his travels around the world, when they are told they are beautiful. Their reactions to the appreciation of their beauty were the most heartwarming reactions ever seen. The power a simple genuine compliment can be noticed in the photos below.
