Day 236: Something Beautiful—Audrey

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.

A Belgian girl. Clothes looked beautiful on her. The camera loved her. A natural likeability and care for people gave her an irresistible fragility on screen. While watching a documentary I learned the poignant story behind her work with UNICEF. Audrey Hephurn was a child during the WWII. She was one of the many at that time suffering from malnutrition.

Whatever the hardships, they were never apparent on that face. That beautiful face—che bel viso.
