“Beauty is everywhere and is not about race, money or trends but more about being yourself… Beauty is in our differences,” photographer Mihaela Noroc shares in her IndieGoGo video for her crowdsourcing campaign, The Atlas of Beauty. Noroc got viral fame from Buzzfeed, CNN, Forbes and Elle when she broke photos of 37 women from different countries in their authentic states. The stunning photos applauded the intrinsic glorious wonder of diverse beauty in striking portraits.

Soon, the photographer realized that the story needed to be even bigger. She has been traveling for the past two years taking photos of hundreds of women but now she is seeking to expand the book with support from the global community. Her IndieGoGo campaign launched on March 17, 2015 and has already gathered over $15,000 of her $27,000 goal.
