Romanian Photographer Travels 37 Countries To Take Pictures Of Women and Show That Beauty Is Everywhere

Published 4 years ago

Mihaela Noroc of Romania decided to travel the world (on the cheap) and create an Atlas of Beauty to see how beauty looks around the world. Her photo series shows a wide variety of beautiful women in their environment and clothing of choice. The result is more impressive and beautiful than any Miss Universe pageant.

“Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different.” she writes on Bored Panda. “In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is always somebody else. My goal is to continue and take photos of women from each country of the globe, making ‘The Atlas Of Beauty’ a mirror of our diverse societies and an inspiration for people that try to remain authentic.”

And there’s the point: following fashion trends isn’t a must for beauty and dressing to reflect your culture isn’t a sin. In a sense, it’s about remaining true to your cultural roots and not sacrificing everything to the cold and uncaring fashion gods of Paris or New York.
