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 all corners of the world and shows that beauty is everywhere, regardless of money, race or social status, and comes in many different sizes and colours. Noroc's portraits feature women in their native environments, from the Amazon rain forest to markets in India, London city streets and parks in Harlem, and visually demonstrate the juxtaposition between the varied built and social worlds these women inhabit.

Amazing Book


The photographs in this book featuring portraits of 500 women from all around the world are absolutely stunning. So many incredible shots in there. Highly recommended for photography lovers and just anyone who wants an insight into some of the different cultures that make up our world.

Love love love this book. Beautiful!


I adore looking at the photos in this book and reading the little snippets about the people in it. The only downside is that sometimes I want to know more about them and their lives. A beautiful and inspiring project of photos.

The books are too small especially for the price.


i expected a coffee table sized book twice the size

lennox head


book is too small for illustrations of that type


I am very dissppointed in the size of the book considering it is all about the photographs. I purchased two as gifts for coffee table display and they are too small, especially at nearly $ 40 each


I was eagerly awaiting the delivery of this book! Amazing


Such a stunning collection of photos.
