The Atlas of Beauty

In my eyes, individuality is one of the most interesting traits a person can carry. The unique characteristics or qualities that a person posses is what makes them who they are. I think that beauty can also be individualistic. We are all of different descent and the genes we inherit as just another factor into our individuality as whole.

One photographer realized this and made it her mission to capture all of the individual beauty of women throughout the world. Mihaela Noroc, the author of The Atlas of Beauty, has traveled the world taking pictures of women to document the vast diversity of beauty throughout the world. Noroc’s goal is to document the world diversity through the different shades of beauty throughout the world. Looking through the pictures I was captivated by how unique each women looked, each products of their heritage, culture and environment.
