I met Jacinta last year, in a Mayan village called Chichicastenango, in Guatemala. Her story begins many, many years ago. It was 1916, when a 50 years old woman in Guatemala decided to cause herself an abortion. She thought she is too old to have another baby. The abortion failed and a few months later Jacinta was born. Now make the calculation. Yes, Jacinta is 103 years old. She was a surviver, even before she was born. She was the youngest daughter, so according to tradition she took care of her parents until they passed away. Then she got married, but the marriage wasn’t so great. Her husband used to be quite oppressive so they didn’t get along very well. She was 70 years old when he passed away. But Jacinta admitted frankly: after that she finally started to enjoy herself for the first time in her life. She was still feeling young and the best time of her life was just beginning. Jacinta lived by herself until she was 99 years old. Then, after broking a foot, she decided to live with one of her granddaughters. The granddaughter told me that Jacinta was always a humorous person. Once in a while she tells her laughing that her bed is really cold and she needs somebody there. When I met them, they were coming from a technician where they adjusted Jacinta’s hearing aid. Now she needs it more than ever, because she recently started to learn Spanish. Although Spanish is the official language of the country, Jacinta have spoken all of her life only Quiché, her indigenous native tongue. Now she watches TV programs in Spanish and asks her granddaughter about the new words that she hears. Incredible, right? So what are the secrets of Jacinta’s longevity? One is for sure the food. Jacinta always loved to cook and kept in her memory dozens of traditional Mayan recipes. Her granddaughter gathered them and opened a traditional restaurant. Most recipes are very sophisticated, meat is rarely used, and there’s a rich combination of herbs. I could go on with stories about this extraordinary woman, but 103 years of strength and beauty would never get enough text. I just hope this inspires you to always be as young in spirit and beautiful as Jacinta.

I took this photo in Omo Valley, Ethiopia, in 2016. In this remote place, you can see communities living as they did thousands of years ago. Her tribe is called Daasanach and has lived in isolation for generations. With the high temperatures here, nudity is not unusual. Only 100 kilometres away, you can see some women wearing hijabs, on the way to the mosque, and others wearing thin, white veils, on the way to the church. Further away, in the capital, most of the women adopted a modern way of life. The diversity of this fascinating country is one of the things that inspired me to start this project more than five years ago, during my first journey in Ethiopia. In the meantime I took thousands of portraits in almost 60 countries and 500 of them can be found in The Atlas of Beauty Book, accompanied by fascinating stories. If you haven’t purchased the book yet, now it’s a great moment to do that because it has very good prices on most of the online bookstores. More than that, in September, a paperback version of the book will be launched in some countries. More details very soon.

Nujood is a painter, so when I met her in February, in the old town of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, I said to myself that I have to find a picturesque shot. But the light was really bad so we stayed for hours drinking tea and chatting, like so many locals love to do. After a lovely conversation, the picturesque shot was finally there, waiting for us. From the beginning, Nujood was attracted by the visual part of life. Maybe because since childhood she suffered from a hearing disability and had to learn lip reading. Today she wears hearing aids in both ears and that makes her life much easier. She feels fortunate and wants to give back to those in need. That’s why, besides painting, she also works with children with learning disabilities. She knows from her own experience what they need most. #SaudiArabia #TheAtlasOfBeauty #AroundTheWorld
