This photographer has captured the beauty of women from 37 countries

December 21, 2016

Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc left her job two years ago to start a new life. With nothing but a backpack and a camera, she set off to travel the world, taking hundreds of shots of women in their everyday setting. This is how her unique photo project, ’The Atlas Of Beauty’, took shape. The project so far has encompassed work in 37 countries.

“Mihaela says: ’Today I’m convinced that beauty is everywhere, and it has nothing to do with wearing the right cosmetics or dressing in the right clothes. Beauty is in the ability to be oneself.’ Looking at some of her photos, you can clearly see that she is right.
