What I’m Reading: Atlas of Beauty

A few days ago, I received my preorder of Atlas of Beauty, a gorgeous hardcover photographer Mihaela Noroc’s photographs of women she met as she traveled the world with just her backpack and a camera since 2013. I placed my order a month ago and I guess the book is now poised to hit the New York Times bestseller list and I hope it does. It’s a beautiful book.

The Atlas of Beauty is a collection of her photographs celebrating women from all corners of the world, revealing that beauty is everywhere, and that it comes in many different sizes and colors. Noroc’s colorful and moving portraits feature women in their local communities, ranging from the Amazon rainforest to London city streets, and from markets in India to parks in Harlem, visually juxtaposing the varied physical and social worlds these women inhabit. Packaged as a gift-worthy, hardcover book, The Atlas of Beauty presents a fresh perspective on the global lives of women today.

Wakhan Corridor, Afghanistan
This is a place where people invite you into their small mud homes and open up their lives to you. It’s a very harsh existence but it’s all they have ever known and they continue to live as their ancestors did; practicing ancient handicrafts.
