The Average Woman From Around The World

A group of experimental psychologists at the University of Glasgow in Scotland, have published a collection of images that summarize average faces of women from around the world. The photos were generated by aligning multiple pictures of female volunteers and compositing them together to create an approximate “average face.”


It is not clear how the study was made or how exactly the results came to, but what was shared was that the photos were produced by taking the average measurements and shapes of the subjects’ features, then blending them together for a clear final product. This method ultimately erases any singular issues or distinguishable characteristics away.

For some reason, when you look at this study and the photos  you don’t feel the major physical differences, is it because no cultural or ethnical elements were associated with any of the photos? What do you think, do you relate to the woman which represents you in these photos?
