A Bicyclist in Wonsan / 49x69cm / C-Print / 2015
Mihaela Noroc lives in Bucharest, Romania, and has travelled almost continuously for over 5 years, visiting over fifty countries and working on her project, The Atlas of Beauty. Communicating in five languages, she met and photographed women in every type of environment, from all corners of the world, never imagining that her project would gain such international acclaim. In 2015 Noroc travelled to North Korea to photograph the women there and explore this place that is mostly unknown to the rest of the world. A selection of the portraits of North Korean women will be on display. The Atlas of Beauty: Women of the World in 500 Portraits are available in different languages.
