John O’Donohue once said, “The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere – in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and in ourselves.” This is what you’re about to see in this list of photos taken by people who saw beauty all around them.

We at Enlighten believe there is beauty to be found in everything, and beauty seen can be called “art.”
