The difference in the pictures taken before and after the compliment shows genuine reactions of people.

A photographer conducted a social experiment to see what happens when you tell someone they are beautiful.

The 18-year-old student from Chicago, Shea Glover, asked random people to pose for her and said to them, “I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.”

She made a video of their genuine reactions to the compliment and it is absolutely adorable.

“I conducted an independent project which evidently turned into a social experiment regarding beauty. I want to clarify that my intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result,” she clarified.

    Humans are such unpredictable and powerful beings. They can make others smile or take them off their face whenever they want. Recommend

    No doubt everyone was so beautiful but wait. I felt like the photographer was trying to improve their morale, more than actually appreeciating their beauty. You can verify my claim to find 3 people almost cried. Most of of them with random hair colors, looked completely thrown out of social circles as they did not believe and it came to them as surprise.Recommend
