Mehmet Genç is professional photographer from Turkey. His name is ‘Rotasız Seyyah’ on the internet. It means ‘nomad travels without making any route’. He is travelling around the world since 2012 and he started his last journey in December 2014. He learned English and Spanish during his trips. He likes taking photos of indigenous people during his travels. He visited 8 different indigenous communities so far. He travelled around the world 1000 days.

His first book “Rotasız Seyyah Yol Hikayeleri” (My Stories on The Road) was published in September 2016. In its first week, the book got into second print.

The Project “You are so Beautiful”
He started this project on January 2015. When he takes a photo of women he says ‘You are so beautiful’. After saying this compliment, he shoots before and after photos. He usually says this compliment to old women. Because he thinks, they probably haven’t heard any compliment in the last 10-15 years of their life. Sometimes he meets 100 years old people. He always says ‘You are so beautiful’. This compliment works anytime. Not important how old they are.

During the project, he takes all the informations about the women who took photos of them. Name, age and the address. Because he wants to do same journey again after 2023. He will try to find all those women and will take same photos again. Before and after photos of ‘You are so beautiful’.

    Dear Mehmet,

    I have recently stumbled across these amazing pictures of the “You are beautiful collection and am quite impressed – what an ingenious way to illustrate different moods and personality traits!

    Do you think it might be possible for us to show it to the readers of our website (with due credit and link to you, of course)? I am sure people here in Germany would absolutely love it!

    Best wishes from Hamburg

    Good morning, I’m Silvia Renda, a journalist from Huffington Post Italy and I want to ask the permission to use for free the images of “You’re beautiful” project, in an article in wich the initiative will be publicized. If You agree you can send an email to renda.silvi@gmail.com with this text:
    “With this email I authorized Huffingtonpost.it to use my pictures. The images are supplied to an article on “You’re beautiful” project. Also I authorized the use of images for all international edition of Huff Post”.

    Dear Mehmet,

    My name is Juliana. I am a Brazilian student of Artistic Photography at Escola de Fotografia Artística, in Porto Alegre. I was designated for doing a research about your wonderful project “You Are So Beautiful” (which I’m absolutely in love).
    Would you mind to answer a few questions about the project? I can send them by e-mail if you agree.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Mehmet,he leído tus notas sobre tu visita a chile….no se cuando viniste a valparaiso ….tengo la sensación de que te fuiste bastante decepcionado.Dejame decirte que lo poco que viste en 4 o 5 horas no es suficiente…..Valparaíso es más que los cerros alegre y concepción…..Valparaíso es una ciudad mágica,llena de encantadores miradores …..no puedes decir que lo conociste sin haber visto una puesta de sol desde algún cerro o desde la playa,sin Haber sentido el viento en primavera y la avenida Pedro Montt llena de una ” alfombra” de hojas secas caídas de los árboles en otoño…..y el verano …..mmmm…encantador!!,sin un horrible calor y humedad de otras ciudades…..si alguna vez quieres volver,pues acá tienes una servidora que ama su ciudad y sabe donde llevar a un turista para que se enamore de este hermoso puerto. ….un abrazo…

    Best Regards,
