Photographer/director Melanie Acevedo explores the definition of beauty in an original portrait series and short film for Darling magazine

When Melanie Acevedo pitched Darling magazine, whose tagline is “The art of being a woman,” a portrait series and short film exploring the definition of beauty, they jumped at the chance. Melanie’s idea was to feature women of all ages, from 13 to 94, from different ethnic groups and backgrounds, and to photograph them in accordance with Darling‘s strict no-retouching policy. For the accompanying short film, she interviewed them about what “beauty” and being beautiful mean to them.

“This was an incredible experience. We weren’t just taking pictures. We were capturing a celebration of timeless beauty,” Melanie explains in the new issue of Darling, which features her project “The Sum of Our Beauty.”

“A woman’s validity has so long been defined by society according to her looks, and these wounds run so deep. I saw this struggle on the project—women searching to redefine themselves by qualities that come from within—and it was this journey which they were choosing that I found so beautiful to behold.”

Below, the portraits as they appeared in Darling, plus Melanie’s film “Revealing Beauty,” and a fun behind-the-scenes video from the project.
