              Fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski was inspired to create this book, which represents diverse beauty without boundaries, after photographing the actress Lupita Nyong'o. Lubomirski was so impressed by Nyong'o's natural beauty that he felt she didn't need studio lighting because... she radiated light from within. After shooting her, it struck him that he rarely had the chance to photograph beautiful women with a range of different looks for professional assignments. Often when he submitted a list of models he was interested in shooting, responses would be along the lines of We love her, but ... , Her hair is a problem ... , She is too dark. In response, Lubomirski conceived Diverse Beauty, which celebrates many different types of female beauty through sophisticated and lively fashion photographs. Diverse Beauty embraces all beauty and aims to put every type of beauty on a pedestal, so that everyone who looks at it, no matter her race, size, colour, or sexual orientation, can identify and see herself as beautiful.
