Sometimes it can be hard to not take looks so seriously -- people seem hard-wired to, as they say, judge books by their covers -- but the My Friends Are Pretty photo series defies this logic. It is a beautiful collection of images that shows just how much we should be proud of who we are and what we look like.

Shot by legendary portrait photographer Ben Capp, the My Friends Are Pretty photo series is a celebration of such self-awareness, spurred on by his own acceptance of his looks. As he puts it, "I thought, 'I'm ghostly pale, have freckles and ginger chest hair...' I understood I was not, nor ever would be, the quintessential Adonis of a man we all may want to be."
