It’s really amazing how much light a person’s smile can bring into the world.

In a bad mood? A smile can fix that.

Having a brutal week at work? Get someone to smile for you!

A photographer named Jay Weinstein is the man behind a project called “So I Asked Them To Smile”.

He takes photos of people all over the world before and after he asks them to smile and if it proves one thing, it’s that no matter where you’re from, how old you are, or what you look like, we all smile the same way and a smile can communicate goodwill and happiness across all barriers.

Let’s take a look at some of Weinstein’s photos.

I have a feeling you’re going to smile, too.
