One of the unfortunate consequences of cultural globalization is that people around the world have begun to assimilate their appearances and behaviors to a uniform standard. However, our unique cultural upbringing has an often underappreciated impact upon the beauty which we offer to the world. Our complexion, manner of dress, and expressive style are all strongly influenced by our ethnic backgrounds, leading to unlimited possibilities for beauty across the continents. The talented Romanian photographer, Mihaela Noroc
is on a journey around the world to capture the diverse faces of feminine beauty. Mihaela writes that “Beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics or sizes but more about being yourself.” In viewing these photographs, I was stunned to see gorgeous women who look unlike any I’ve ever seen in the States. It is always inspiring to view authentic beauty that is beyond one’s limited scope of experience.
