Photographer Captures the Diversity of Beauty around the World


Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc is on a mission to capture portraits of women from around the world in every single country in order to show that beauty exists everywhere. Noroc's life took a complete change after she quit her job and decided to travel around the globe with nothing more than her camera and a backpack.

The photos are part of a series titled The Atlas of Beauty which is still an ongoing project. So far she has captured portraits from women in 37 different countries on almost every single continent. Checkout the amazing photographs below.
