Since 2013 Mihaela Noroc has travelled the world with her backpack and camera taking photos of everyday women to showcase the diversity and beauty all around us. The Atlas of Beauty is a collection of her photographs that celebrates women from all corners of the world and shows that beauty is everywhere, regardless of money, race or social status, and comes in many different sizes and colours. Noroc's portraits feature women in their native environments, from the Amazon rain forest to markets in India, London city streets and parks in Harlem, and visually demonstrate the juxtaposition between the varied built and social worlds these women inhabit. Mihaela Noroc lives in Bucharest, Romania, and has travelled almost continuously for the last four years, visiting over fifty countries and working on her project The Atlas of Beauty. Communicating in five languages, she met and photographed women in every type of environment, from all corners of the world, never imagining that her project would gain such international acclaim. The Atlas of Beauty is her first book. Photographs of women from more than 50 countries, with captions that reveal each woman's unique story and environment.
