Mehmet Genç is a Turkish travel photographer who goes by the name of Rotasiz Seyyah (roughly translated as "nomad without a route"). His pictures are stunning but one project in particular will really put a smile on your face. He calls it "You Are So Beautiful" and the idea is simple. Genç tells the people he meets on his travels that they're beautiful and then captures their responses on film. And as you can see from the pictures below, his subjects often react in the sweetest of ways.

Genç spent six years working in IT in Istanbul before quitting to follow his passion for photography. "Fools courage can sometimes help you make the most important decisions in your life," he writes. He was born and raised in Samsum, Turkey, but these days he seems to call everywhere home. He's currently in Manaus, Brazil, and you can follow his travels on Instagram where he has over 91k followers.

Her look of surprise tells me she probably only hears "you're beautiful" when talking to, or about the baby
