Beauty is everywhere and Mihaela Noroc, a Romanian portrait photographer is continuing her journey to prove it by traveling the world and photographing beautiful women. Her project is called "The Atlas of Beauty", and she posted the photos from 37 countries on Bored Panda roughly a year ago. Now, she is back with more beautiful pictures!

Beauty standards around the world can vary greatly, though sincerity and pure elegance, always wins compared to the ones depicted in social media.

"In the past two years I traveled around the world, and captured hundreds of portrait photography shots in diverse environments," she wrote on Bored Panda. "My goal is to show that allure is in our differences, not in trends, Beauty standards, money or race."

"Through my photography, I want to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which is so specific to the most beautiful women in the world and comes to balance all the negativity we see in the media. I think people should be more aware of other cultures and beauty can teach us to be more tolerant."

I love these photos! The woman are all so beautiful and diverse. The nay -sayers complaining about countries/regions not being represented have clearly not considered the work and expense that goes into world travel. I am certain this photographer would love to continue taking these photos as they are able to travel to new locations- and I REALLY hope those get shared as well! Keep up the amazing work you are doing! And ignore the haters ;-)

The photographer wasn't looking for the most British girl from England or the most Turkish girl from Turkey. They are capturing many different aspect of beautiful women. This is made to be empowering not bitchy and critical. I think she's lovely!

why do you have to always portray Turkey troubled?? I work in the heart of Istanbul, Taksim, I do not see trouble..., some minor troubles do not represent the whole region, while all over the world there are more and worse troubles in developed countries..., PERHAPS THIS IS HOW THE MEDIA WORKS HUH!!??
