"We, your beauty flies, birthmarks, scars, warts, bushy eyebrows and wrinkles, are offended that you despise us in this way. You hide us under thick layers of makeup, erase them with lasers and stretch them behind your ears. we make homo sapiens faces different and recognizable. We celebrate your life experience and mark achievements, and we need to be highlighted for that. "

During the workshop “Framing of Beauty Flies”, everyone will be able to celebrate any peculiarity of their own skin and finally bring it to a place of honor. It will be possible to fix the body marks in a specially equipped photo studio, create a luxurious one by hand, and place it in a photo frame to be placed in a place of honor at home.
