"A New Way of Beauty" is the second of two bodies of work Karen has been making on Female Identity. This project documents through portraits the change of the beauty concept. "Deconstruction" and "A New Way of Beauty" bond together to constitute one whole but yet independent.

Karen grew up during the 90's hence the concept of beauty for her has been strongly related to the Barbie doll. Those unattainable standards have always raised some questions, modifying the way she perceives beauty. Although, now beauty for her is a matter of concept. Models were asked among other questions if they can define beauty in a word, the title of each photograph is what beauty means for them. Women of all age, height, color, and weight were photographed for this project and sixteen photographs were chosen as an irony to the golden ratio. The golden ratio (1.618) has been associated with beauty, believing that this proportion found in faces is aesthetically pleasing and that it plays a role in human perception of beauty.

This project seeks to explore the individualism in the connotation of beauty concept challenging the conventional standards of beauty for women.
