Mihaela was born on May 18th, 1985. She studied at The National University of Arts in Bucharest, the Photo-Video Department.

After several years of work in various other domains, in 2012 Mihaela decided to focus all her energy on her first love, photography.

A trip to Ethiopia, where she discovered incredible feminine faces, inspired her to start The Atlas of Beauty.

After that, she went on a 15 months voyage around the world, capturing the diversity of the planet by photographing portraits. She believes that beauty is everywhere and does not depend on money, trends or races, but rather on simplicity and authenticity.

In a world of globalization which tends to become monotonous, Mihaela just wants to show that our differences make us truly beautiful and that it is essential for us to hold on to our uniqueness and specificity.

The Atlas of Beauty was born almost two years ago and it is already known around the world.

Mihaela’s unique approach has attracted the attention of the world’s greatest publications which have written extensively about it. Images of the project have been seen by over a hundred million people from dozens of countries.

The Atlas of Beauty has become the most media featured contemporary Romanian art project and Mihaela hopes that this will help her receive the necessary funding in order to continue it.

All the works in the exhibition can be purchased by those who want to collect Mihaela’s magnificent photographs and by doing so, they help her continue her project, which can only go on with as much support as possible.

In June 2015, the photographer wants to start a new expedition around the world, with the intention to “map” other countries and territories on all continents, before printing a unique album.

Mihaela’s desire is to gather in this album hundreds of portraits of women from around the world, showing that the greatest treasure of our planet is its diversity. In a world that tends to become uniform, The Atlas of Beauty wants to encourage us to be proud of our genetic and cultural inheritance, to be ourselves.

“The ‘Atlas of Beauty’ Exhibition presents Mihaela Noroc’s much admired photos ‘live’ for the first time. The young Romanian artist is an amazing human being who, through her sensitivity, commitment, hard work and trust in her own vision, brings a priceless contribution to one of mankind’s greatest needs: the need for beauty.” Curator Anca Negescu


The exhibition “Vertical Flight”, which takes place between March 10th 2015 and April 11th 2015, brings together works by a great Romanian master, Mr. Viorel Mărginean, presenting older paintings by the artist and also new ones, shown for the very first time. This show marks the beginning of spring, celebrating the first season and nature’s comeback to life through a feast of colors, which is a distinctive characteristic of the artist’s work.


“Places” is an elaborate sequence, sought through different printmaking techniques, (mezzotint, photogravure, lithography) of contradictory concepts present in our daily lives. Thus, passivity is represented by subtle suggestions of extinct activity: carefully observed plies on a fresh pillow highlighted by reflectors. The open doors in “What is happening here” seem to have been captured in the exact moment after an important and emotional episode. We don’t know what happened, or whom it happened to, but we feel stuck in between a concealed feeling of emotional complexity impregnated with light and darkness, activity and idleness, and the intermittent change between interior and exterior.

All these antonymic pairs of states of mind, of feelings or concepts are carefully diagnosed, analyzed with precision, from all angles, capturing both physical, tangible and emotional elements in each scene. The constant intermittence between the absence and presence of the human condition in his works creates a haunting rhythm, bringing the beholder somewhere on the edge of suspense and meditation. Everything happens in a tight yet strong quietness fueled both by the inner force of the artistic vision and the indistinct cores of the micro universes themselves.” Alexandra Șchiopu
