Mehmet Genç, a Turkish travel photographer who is also popular by the name of Rotasiz Seyyah (roughly translated as “nomad without a route”). His photography is stunning but one of his projects especially will really put a smile on your face. He calls it “You Are So Beautiful” and the idea is simple. Genç tells the people he meets on his travels that they’re beautiful and then captures. And, as you can see from the photography below, his subjects often react in the sweetest of ways.
Genç spent six years working in IT in Istanbul before quitting to follow his passion for photography. “Fools courage can sometimes help you make the most important decisions in your life,” he writes. He was born and raised in Samsum, Turkey, but these days he seems to call everywhere home. He’s currently in Manaus, Brazil, and you can follow his travels on Instagram where he has over 91k followers.
