99x unique #unfiltered portraits

Unfiltered images? Does this still exist?
What is changing on social media on Instagram, Tiktok or Snapchat? How much time do people spend looking at such images these days?

Reality is distorted and changed. But is that necessary? Change your perspective!

In my photo project, I photographed 99 personalities, none of whom correspond to the usual ideals of beauty.
Nowadays you should be able to appear in public without a filter.

But bullying, harassment and intrigue is often unstoppable and leaves deep emotional scars. What have these people experienced or gone through? I confront you with the bitter reality. Stop looking at scars or prostheses. What does it trigger in people?

I want to show you the possibility that you are unique and that you can be proud of yourself. Everyone is unique just the way they are. Good self-awareness reduces bullying among one another.

I'm Melinda Blättler, born in 1995, from Hergiswil Nidwalden and the woman behind the Herzens photo project.

I have been a freelance professional photographer since 2016 and have my own photo studio in Stansstad. Photography fascinated me from an early age, I love working with people. I completed a three-year apprenticeship as a photo specialist and then attended a higher technical school for another three years and successfully completed it as a professional photographer, communication designer and designer.
