Join author and photographer Mihaela Noroc for a talk and slideshow, Q&A, and book signing for her new book, The Atlas of Beauty: Women of the World in 500 Portraits. This stunning collection, based on the author’s enormously popular online photography project, features portraits of 500 women from more than 50 countries, accompanied by revelatory captions that capture their personal stories.
About the Book:
Since 2013, photographer Mihaela Noroc has traveled the globe 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 the Amazon rain forest 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.
