As a photographer, I often encounter people who don't want to fully smile. They think there's something about their smile that isn't pretty. Or it reveals too much. And yet every time I photograph somebody, when they do smile fully, I watch as their whole face suddenly pops open. And that's when they are at their most beautiful. Because their soul is shining through. Whether they have a crooked smile or a missing tooth, or they think they are less than deserving of being seen, I see the person before me smile, and I see an explosion and integration of inner and outer beauty. I see revelation, of a fully, alive human within the smile. Watching this happen, I smile behind my camera, like a trilling canary has taken flight before my eyes. And suddenly, we're all smiling. It's true: Smile, and the world smiles with you. Smile, and the world comes shining through.
