Image ‘painless beauty’ from RAW series by Andrej Kiripolský, has been announced as shortlisted in Beauty category of the Youth Competition at the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards. It’s an raw analog photo which shows everyday life.
After the picture was developed, I started to think about her pain which was caused by lack of confidence. Women are forced to be beautiful by society – it shows how critical and hard we are on ourselves when it comes to beauty. This is why the picture is ironically called ‘painless beauty’
