This thesis explores what “beauty” means and how to explore it through photography. Beauty is a broad idea that needs to be deconstructed and put back together so that we can functionally understand it for our daily lives. While it is subjective, the concept of beauty isn’t so hard to reach. While it takes effort to understand, it can help understand our own selves on a deeper level and how we interact with the world. Photography can be used as a tool that we use to both explore what beauty means to us and communicate those ideas to others. This manuscript examines dimensions that contribute to this understanding and provides examples.
