Inspired in December 2013, so I asked them to smile is a minimalist photography project that explores the smiles of strangers. It follows the adventures of India/Australia based photographer and travel guide Jay Weinstein by featuring some of the countless people he meets.

Originally started in India, the project now also includes images from Nepal, Australia, China and Kenya. As Jay's travel increases, more countries are added.

So I asked them to smile has no overt message. Its goal is to recreate the mindset from which we view a stranger, and then witness as our assumptions transform with their smile.

So there are no names. No occupations. No confirmed religions or ethnicity. No intriguing life lessons or heart strumming anecdotes.

Just one human face.

Without, and with a smile.
