The Atlas of Beauty, a project by a Rumanian photographer and traveler Mihaela Noroc. Ms Noroc has traveled numerous countries around the globe in the past two years and took hundreds of portraits of different women.
“I’m a photographer from Romania that quit her job and started a new life. Two years ago I took my backpack, my camera and begun to travel around the globe, photographing hundreds of natural women surrounded by their culture.
My project is called “The Atlas Of Beauty”, which is about our planet’s diversity shown through portraits of women. Traveling on a very low budget around 37 countries made me integrated in all kinds of environments. Now I can say that beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics or sizes but more about being yourself.
Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different. In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is always somebody else. My goal is to continue and take photos of women from each country of the globe, making “The Atlas Of Beauty” a mirror of our diverse societies and an inspiration for people that try to remain authentic.
