When Dina Johnson and her husband moved to Serbia, it was a "leaving it all behind" move. But she quickly found something to use her impressive publishing industry experience on. She approached the National Theater in Belgrade, proposing to do a portrait project, to result in a photo book.
That photo book is called The Unseen Beauty.
"The main thing was to actually make their portraits, to show how gracious and glamorous they are. Most of them did not have their professional photos taken for many years and I wanted to correct this mistake. I felt so good seeing how happy they were when they saw The Unseen Beauty book. I still get very emotional when I think about it." - Dina Johnson
