Mihaela Noroc, a photographer based-in Bucharest, Romania, has been traveling around the world with her backpack and camera, taking pictures of beautiful women for her photo series titled The Atlas of Beauty. And her mission?
This is what she had to say: “I want to photograph women from each country of the world, to show that beauty is everywhere.”
Featured below are 20 of her several photographs of women. Each photo is worth a thousand words — depicting not only the beauty of a woman, but as well as a glimpse of her life and culture. Enjoy!
Rio de Janeiro
I’m a 30 years old photographer from Bucharest, Romania. I love to travel and I visited more than 60 countries until now, with my backpack and my camera.
I like modern boulevards from Tokyo, or crowded streets from New York, but also remote communities of Africa or Amazonia, where locals live like 200 years ago and I can sleep in their homes.
I love the variety of earth, the diversity of people and I try to go beyond their surface, to discover their sincere and authentic side, to photograph it.
In the last years I worked hard, saved some money and started an independent unique project about women from all around the world: The Atlas of Beauty. I spend all my savings traveling to 37 countries, and now I look forward to find funds and continue.
