The Romanian photographer recently returned from North Korea adding yet another page to her acclaimed project: ‘The Atlas Of Beauty’. More than 60 countries visited in search of authentic beauty captured by Mihaela’s camera.


‘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.’ – Mihaela Noroc

No wonder CNN, Huffington Post, Oprah Winfrey, Daily Mail, Curriere de la Sera, Le Figaro and many others have featured ‘The Atlas of Beauty’.
