The Average Face of Women Across the World

Finding the average face of women across the world was a tough job but someone had to do it. That incredibly tedious task fell on the shoulders of a budding author who sifted through thousands and thousands of images just to find what he claims is the average face of women in different nationalities. While looking at pictures of beautiful girls may seem like a glamorous way to spend one’s time, the author had a tough time finding good frontal shots but his hard work paid off and the results speak for themselves in the pictures below.

Does any body know who made this series?

This images series is quite inacurate. The averages are only made from 15 to 20 images each...not near enough to make the correct average of a country. The series was unrightfully taken from a guys website who had no intention of claiming it was a "true" average woman from any country. It was just for fun. A correct average must be made following the demographics of the population, and you have to use about 100 images. After that, the average stays the same. A global project led by David Trood is underway to find the averages of different countries, and we are traveling through each country photographing hundreds and hundreds of people. Then current location we are working on is the USA where we are photographing one in every million Americans (312 people) to find the Face of the USA. Last year I made the Face of Humanity comprised of no less than 670 people which was 1/10.000.000th of the worlds population in 2009.

The average girl on earth can be found at www.trood.dk. Also the man of the world...and the face of humanity, a composite of 1/10.000.000th of the worlds population in one face.

Very nice. But why are some of the images distorted? I'v never seen a German girl with a such a short face.

What does average face of a woman even mean? Average beauty? Judged by whom? Average skin color, age, fat-assedness?
