Tribute To Diversity: A Multi-Cultural Photo Project 'The Atlas Of Beauty' By Mihaela Noroc

When Mihaela Noroc, a photographer from Romania, decided to quit her job at the age of 27 to travel the globe and capture the diverse feminine beauty of the world, she had no idea it would turn to an ultra popular project in less than three years.

During these three years Mihaela has traveled to more than 50 countries with her backpack and camera, and photographed women in their natural environment, giving us the privilege to realize how diverse and mesmerizing human beings can be, no matter where they are on the planet. Her work is a fresh breeze among the internet flooded by so called “all natural” beauties, a clean breath in the sea of over-retouched female portraits.

Through my photography I want to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which comes from the eyes of a woman and can balance sometimes the negativity we see in the media.

Mihaela’s goal is to travel to all the countries of the globe and photograph the diverse and authentic beauty everywhere. She believes that it can teach us to be more open-minded towards all kind of human discriminations such as religion, ethnicity, or sex.

The author finished her first episode of her journey with her personal savings and some support from her followers on November 2014. The second episode started in June, 2015. If you appreciate the project and would like to support her, it is possible to do so in her official website.

Here is a small collection from this amazing project, and you can find the full collection at her website, Instagram, or Facebook.
