The Beauty of Motherhood in 18 Different Cultures

 The Atlas of Beauty is a unique project started by Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc in 2013. Noroc dedicated the past seven years to traveling around the world and capturing the portraits of women from all different cultures and backgrounds. Each portrait tells the story of a different woman and highlights different kinds of strength. 

Among all the women she photographed, Mihaela snapped 26 pairs of mothers and children , and couldn’t help but notice the unique intimate chemistry in those photographs. We have combined these mother-portraits together in this photo collection, as they are indeed special. The photographer herself became a mother in 2018 and now takes her daughter Natalia along with her on her travels.

To see more of Noroc's work you may visit her website to Instagram page.
