“BEAUTY IS DIVERSITY AND I TRAVEL THE WORLD TO DISCOVER IT”
Michaela Noroc, a Romanian backpacker photographer, created The Atlas of Beauty three years ago. The Atlas of Beauty is a project that focuses on photographing women around the globe. Noroc has visited more than 50 countries already where she has met incredible women and has listened to their life stories, experiences and thoughts. Michaela’s project is now known world-wide for celebrating the diversity of the world through photographs of women.
Michaela hopes to showcase and transmit to her audience that beauty knows no age, trends or colors because beauty is simply about being who you are. In a world where war and attacks are breaking out in every corner of the world it’s important to remember that yes, we are all different but rather than letting those differences tear us apart we should use them to bring us together. As a photographer, I strive to showcase the individuality of each of my models, at the end it’s not just about freezing a moment in time but capturing the richness of our own uniqueness and diversity.
- “There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”
