We all want to change something in our appearance, even if only one small feature. Photographer Scott Chasserot gives us such a chance in the Original Ideal project. He combines portrait photography with neurology, highlighting the ideal image by analyzing brain waves. His works are a reflection of how each person really sees himself.

To begin with, Chasserot makes a portrait of a person in an absolutely natural form, without makeup and jewelry, with a neutral facial expression. Then the photographer creates many versions of the image based on scientifically established canons of beauty — makes the face symmetrical, puts the eyes closer to each other, changes the forehead.

After that, the photographer shows the options to the heroes of the shooting and with the help of the Emotiv brain scanner reveals the most positive reaction of a person to the proposed photos, thereby determining how, in his opinion, his ideal image looks.

Chasserot tries to determine "what on an instinctive level we consider beautiful and how it reflects on how we see ourselves." Of course, everyone has their own idea of beauty, but there are also generally accepted standards — for example, a small nose and light eye color.

And how would you like to change your appearance in order to achieve your idea of an ideal image?
