Quest for Beauty is the ongoing project of Sara Melotti: a 27-year-old New York-based Italian photographer who shoots fashion as well as other commercial pursuits and decided to do her own world wide quest for beauty that might not fit into mainstream fashions aesthetic. These are from a trip she took across Ethiopia.
“I love fashion, but I wanted to give back by starting this project about beauty,” she says. “I think we’ve reached a place where beauty has come down to a very narrow convention. Not only the fashion industry, but the media and Hollywood have also contributed to this.”
