I Photographed Women From 37 Countries To Show That Beauty Is Everywhere

I’m a photographer from Romania that quit her job and started a new life. Two years ago I took my backpack, my camera and begun to travel around the world, photographing hundreds of beautiful women surrounded by their culture.

My project is called “The Atlas Of Beauty,” which is about our planet’s diversity shown through portraits of women. Traveling on a meager budget around 37 countries made me integrated into all kinds of environments. Now I can say that beauty is everywhere, and the beauty definition is not a matter of cosmetics or sizes but more about being yourself.

Global beauty standards make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different. In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is always somebody else. My goal is to continue and take photos of the most beautiful women from each country of the globe, making “The Atlas Of Beauty” a mirror of our diverse societies and an inspiration for people that try to remain authentic.

Now you can choose my next destinations and support me to continue through my Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign.

They are still very much within the Western stereotype of beauty. I'd like to see more African looking women and different sizes and shapes

Did you miss the part where she says she wants to continue going to other countries? Why treat it like it is a slight?
