The Atlas Of Beauty

is an ongoing photography series by Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc.

She is a photographer from Romania that quit her job and started a new life. Two years ago she took her backpack, her camera and begun to travel around the globe, photographing hundreds of natural women surrounded by their culture.

Her 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 her integrated in all kinds of environments. Now she 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. Her 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.
