Photography: Atlas of Beauty by Mihaela Noroc
Two years ago Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc quit her job and embarked on her project called The Atlas of Beauty. Below is her mission statement. "Beauty means diversity and I travel the world to discover it. From Western Europe to African Tribes, and from Rio de Janeiro to China, I try to capture, in my photos, natural and diverse faces. In my opinion, beauty means to keep alive your origins and your culture. To be natural, sincere, authentic, particular, not necessary fashion or skinny. Maybe in 50 years all women from all around the world will dress and act the same. I hope my project will remain a witness of my era’s cultures and traditions. My goal is to continue for many years and to study beauty in all countries of the globe, if possible, making this Atlas a project known around the world and an inspiration for all women that try to be themselves." There is not really much to add to that. I know I will be checking in on her website to support her project and follow her journey. She also has an Instagram account..
