Artist Photographs Women From 37 Countries To Show That Beauty is Everywhere


cover

Mihaela Noroc is a photographer from Romania that quit her job and started a new life. Two years ago she took her backpack and camera, and began 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 the portraits of women. Traveling on a very low budget, she visited over 37 countries and integrated herself in all kinds of environments. According to Noroc, “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.”  Noroc’s goal is to continue to 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.

  1. I love your diverse site and images but was disappointed with the glaring lack of diversity, or lack of strong black women included in the video. Came to your site to tell you about that, and now a bit confused, since I see such a diverse page. Thanks

  2. Erm…. I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news….. But title of this article is rather misleading. Beauty ISN’T everywhere at all, as some of the women that were photographed are very ugly indeed.
    Seems like a lot of white “Western” women are beautiful, but women from the more unusual places look like a bulldog licking piss from a thistle.
    Mihaela Noroc…. Go home, you’re drunk!
