Graphic designer Marcos Guinoza rejects beauty standards.
“For me beauty can be found in silence, in emptiness, an exciting landscape or a spontaneous smile, an affectionate touch. I’ve often found beauty in uncommon places most think of as ugly. I can’t disagree with that old cliche: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Yes, universal beauty exists, but this kind of standardization is boring.”
