She Took Photos Of ‘Beautiful’ Women From 37 Countries… And Makes An Important Point.

As a woman, do you consider yourself beautiful? What makes a woman beautiful? More importantly, can we truly put parameters on beauty when what is considered "beautiful" varies from place to place, person to person?

Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc wanted to take closer look at what defines beauty in different parts of the world. Throughout her travels, Noroc photographed women in their home countries, wearing the styles and beauty trends of their choice. Sometimes, she was only able to spend about 30 seconds with her subject, but still managed to capture their essence on film.

Noroc wrote about her intentions for the project:

“Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different.” “In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is always somebody else. My goal is to continue and take photos of women from each country of the globe, making ‘The Atlas Of Beauty’ a mirror of our diverse societies and an inspiration for people that try to remain authentic.”

Check out her stunning photographs of these women below.
