The Atlas of Beauty

“Beauty is in our differences. Now I can say beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics or sizes but more about being yourself.” – Mihaela Noroc


Romania-based photographer Mihaela Noroc quit her job several years ago, grabbed her camera, and traveled around the globe photographing as many women from different cultures possible. She calls her work, ‘The Atlas of Beauty.’ She traveled to 37 countries on a very limited budget and met women from all walks of life.

Norac says, “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.”

It’s an incredible project that will soon be published. Here is a small glimpse.
