traveled the world with her backpack and camera taking photos of everyday women to showcase the diversity of beauty all around us The This collection seemed like the perfect blend between Strong Is the New Pretty by Kate T Parker and Brandon Stanton s Humans of New York So the wait to get approved for this ARC was nearly excruciating with me checking my emails every day for a week But I m glad to say that it lived up to the hype I created in my mind.Since 2013 photographer Mihaela Noroc has traveled the world with her backpack and camera taking photos of everyday women to showcase the diversity of beauty all around us 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 therainforest 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.I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for the women featured in here They bring dignity, strength, and inner beauty that shines from page to page From each of them I learned or was reminded of something new, whether that be tolerance, kindness, resilience, natural and authentic beauty, serenity, strength, and generosity Plus, the vibrant and colorful photographs really brought something new to the table However, as captivating as the images were, I feel like the words that accompanied them, save for a few, failed to move me In comparison to the collections I mentioned at the start of my review, it was difficult to ignore how bland the text is I wanted to see what lies beneath the surface, to feel like we re getting to know the person in front of us But again, save for a few, I rarely encountered said emotion in this collection Also I m low key sad that the cover picture wasn t included in here.On a brighter note, I d love to share the photographs of the enthralling women that captivated me Pokhara, Nepal Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan New York, USA Wakhan Corridor, Afghanistan Tehran, Iran Nampan, MyanmarRainforest, Ecuador I was truly surprised to see Eden Saban in the above, since she s quite well known in Israel, thanks to being on the last season of Big Brother So now I m quite eager to find out if the author randomly stumbled upon her and asked for a picture, or if they set this up.On that bitter sweet note, the sharp women and girls featured in The Atlas of Beauty have made a new fan out of me I m definitely interested in keeping up with Mihaela Noroc s photography works next in the makingNote I m anAffiliate If you re interested in buyingThe Atlas of Beauty, just click on the image below to go through my link I ll make a small
