• Backstage beauty contests

This unusual photo project Jenn Ackerman and Tim Gruber will allow us to look behind the scenes of beauty pageants Miss USA and Miss Universe.

Beauty contests have long been a symbol of the West, in spite of what some consider them false competition for dummy girls. The world of beauty contests - it is a world in which the silicone implants and plastic surgery have become the norm, and the fate of the contestants decides not always impartial jury.

Photo project "Miss" is dedicated to this girl's competition, which he explores through the prism of admiration, respect, reverent and sadness. The project allows the viewer a glimpse behind the scenes of the two largest in the world beauty pageants - Miss USA and Miss Universe. Here you will see rivalry, partnership, pain and determination member, trying to get what the majority of girls in the world only dreams. This project will show you the world of ribbons, thinness, makeup, curls and high heels - and all that girls are ready to go for the honor to become the new "Miss" of the year.
