The Atlas of Beauty

Mihaela Noroc Photography

Photographer from Romania, the author of an unique project -The Atlas of Beauty-. She travels and captures the natural and diverse beauty around the world.

I photographed women in 37 countries, but there are more faces on earth to be discovered.

Your support is really important because it will help me reach more places of the earth and show more diversity of our amazing planet. Our world really needs an Atlas of Beauty and we can create it together.

What is The Atlas of Beauty

First of all, let me introduce myself: I’m Mihaela Noroc, a 29 years old photographer from Romania. In the past 2 years I traveled around the world, with my own small savings, photographing hundreds of women and creating a project called The Atlas of Beauty.

My goal is to show that beauty is everywhere and is not about race, money or trends, but more about being yourself, natural and authentic.

Today more and more women feel a pressure to look in a certain way, but I think we are beautiful, if we treasure what makes us unique.

The Atlas of Beauty became viral on the internet and major publications, from all around the world, wrote about it. Now I have the chance to make my statement heard so it’s very important to continue my project.


19333-R3L8T8D-900-different-countries-women-portrait-photography-michaela-noroc-5-moscow-russiaI have to travel at least one year to gather enough images for publishing a comprehensive Atlas, but I really need your support to do this journey.

19345-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere16__880I plan to visit all continents, except Antarctica, and I will make my exact route based on your votes. I will go in both modern and traditional countries. I will cover different kind of environments from cities, villages and remote areas to show the diversity of our planet, through portraits of women.

Now that I reached the funding goal, I can cover the expenses listed above. 

But more funds I raise, more countries and diversity I will capture. The extra funds are essential for the quality of the project and for the film of the journey so each contribution is still very important, until the last day of the campaign.

I will buy a dedicated video camera and microphone.  The documentary will be very authentic and realistic, but it still needs investments.

Sometime I will be able to rent a car to go in more remote places.

But this is just the beginning. If I will have your support I will capture much more diversity. Together we will continue to show that beauty means to be yourself, to be proud of your roots, to cultivate what you have, instead of being disappointed about something that you don’t have.

Beauty is in our differences and uniqueness. Now I’m saying it trough words, but if I will have your support, I will “say” it better through my photos.

In my previous journey I had dangerous moments, hard days of working, exhausting routes, unfriendly viruses, but I will do it again, with all my passion. This time I will have more experience and more confidence, knowing that wonderful people from all around the world are supporting me.
