This gorgeous book landed in my lap over the holidays and I couldn’t put it down. I just loved it.
A stunning photographic journal captured in a beautiful hardcover coffee table book, The Atlas of Beauty features 500 incredible photos of beauty around the world.
Photographer Mihaela Noroc, originally from Romania, has travelled the atlas since 2013, documenting everyday women going about their daily lives.
She has visited over 50 countries (including South Africa) in her quest to document the diversity and beauty all around us – not just on the pages of glossy mags or across billboards.
Watch her journey around South Africa here:
I LOVED paging through this book – admiring the photos and reading the stories that she came across while chatting to the women of the world.
This book shows that beauty is everywhere – regardless of money, race, age, social status or social media following! It’s in the markets of India, the streets of London, the mountains of Afghanistan and the deserts of Ethiopia.
These portraits capture that and show that compassion and love are at the heart of every beautiful women. (R400 on Loot)
