Criterion
It is a common English idiom to say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,
but perhaps it is more accurate to say that beauty is in the geography,
as cultural ideals of beauty vary drastically by region.
Interestingly, the local environment seems to play
an important role in what is seen as beautiful.

Criterion is a growing collection of photographs that reflect
on different cultures with their own primary criterion of beauty.
