One globe-trotting photographer has just proved that beauty can be found literally anywhere.
The photographer, 29-year-old Mihaela Noroc, calls her project “The Atlas of Beauty.”Her adventure began when she quit her job and decided to travel the world. Over two years she traveled to 37 countries spanning every continent except for Antarctica.
Noroc explained:”Sometimes I have only 30 seconds to make a portrait, because I meet an interesting woman, by chance, on the street … Other times, I maybe spend one hour, photographing, after I found her on a social network, a day before.”

All of Noroc’s subjects are between 20 and 30 years old so that faces can be critiqued from country to country. Noroc is currently seeking funds to complete her project.

“Now I can say that beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics, money, race, or social status, but more about being yourself.”
