The Atlas Of Beauty is a project about our planet’s diversity shown through portraits of women. Since almost 4 years ago, Mihaela travels around the world with her backpack and her camera. In this journey she photographs natural women surrounded by their environment. Until now she visited more than 50 countries with the project.
Today The Atlas of Beauty is one of the most popular photo projects in the world. It has strong communities on Facebook and Instagram while its Tumblr blog was the third most viral in 2015. When she started the project in 2013 she didn’t imagine that 3 years later she will talk about it live, on CNN, or on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday.
Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Business Insider, Forbes, BBC, Spiegel, Corriere della Sera are just a few other media outlets that featured the project and showed her photos to the world.
Through my photography she wants to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which comes from the eyes of a woman and can balance sometimes the negativity we see in the media. Each woman is beautiful in her own way and beauty can teach us to be more tolerant.
Many people from all around the world face discrimination just because they have a certain color, religion, ethnicity or because they are women. But we should celebrate diversity because we are all part of the same beautiful family.
