Photographs and stories of 500 women from around the world, based on the author's hugely popular website.
Since 2013 Mihaela Noroc has travelled the world with her backpack and camera taking photos of everyday women to showcase the diversity and beauty all around us. The Atlas of Beauty is a collection of her photographs that celebrates women from fifty countries across the globe and shows that beauty is everywhere, regardless of money, race or social status, and comes in many different sizes and colours. Mihaela's portraits feature women in their native environments, from the Amazon rain forest to markets in India, London city streets and parks in Harlem, creating a mirror of our varied cultures and proving that beauty has no rules.

I’ve attached a pic of my favorite page. The woman on top right is from Argentina and the woman on the bottom is from Iran. And though they live worlds apart geographically they look like they could be related.
So much beauty is captured in these photos with so much care and dignity.
This will be my Christmas gift to my friends this year.
I didn’t even tell them anything about he book, just left it on the coffee table where they naturally picked it up and flipped through it. For the first week there was a lot of “I like her the most; which do you like?” and “I think SHE’S the prettiest”. I took these opportunities to discuss how people look different and can be beautiful in different ways. After a while, there were much fewer comparisons of the women in the book and zero comparison of themselves to someone else’s beauty standards. This photo book was worth more than the 1,000,000 words I would have wasted trying to explain to my daughters how they were beautiful in their own way. We also saw how a smile lights up a person’s face no matter their age/background.
5 stars because the book materials are high quality, the photos are beautiful, the captions are interesting and inspiring. It must have taken a huge amount of work and years of her life for the photographer to take and compile all the photos.
Hard to think of any cons. Something about the expression of the woman on the cover seems strange to me, so I choose to display the back cover with 8 beautiful women of diverse heritage.
What stunning portraits! The women included are of all nationalities and beliefs. Some are old and some young, but they all are beautiful. This is a wonderful book and I look forward to spending a lot of time looking at the gorgeous photos and women that really do show the the beauty of our world. Thank you Mihaela for taking us all on this journey.
