Vier Wereld Meisjes Dag met deze prachtige fotoserie

Vandaag is het Internationale Day of the Girl, Wereld Meisjes Dag, een dag waarop stil wordt gestaan bij de rechten van meisjes. De Roemeense fotograaf Mihaela Noroc reisde de hele wereld rond om vrouwen en meisjes in beeld te brengen. Deze prachtige fotoserie, gebundeld in The Atlas of Beauty, willen wij u niet onthouden.

Noroc bezocht meer dan 45 landen en bracht de vrouwen in beeld in hun natuurlijke omgeving: weinig gekunsteld, slechts prachtige portretten. Met het project The Atlas of Beauty wil de fotograaf de diversiteit van de wereldbevolking laten zien. Noroc: “Global trends make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different. In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is always somebody else.”

Een kleine greep uit de foto’s:

Koleka is a performance poet from South Africa. She was born in a family of 8 siblings in Port Elizabeth and now lives in Cape Town where I met her 5 months ago. In a time when the success is mostly synonym with lots of money or huge popularity, it’s great to see that there are still so many wonderful people around the world that dedicate their life to art, although their path is full of struggles and challenges. Besides the time when she recites her poems on a stage, some of the happiest moments in Koleka’s life are her birthdays. She thinks we should appreciate each year of our lives because getting older is a privilege, not something to take for granted.

The island of Sardinia is an autonomous region of Italy. There you will have the chance to hear the Sardinian language sometimes, considered by many scholars the closest to Latin, and see some of the most diverse traditional costumes in the world. Each village and town has its own traditional outfits, incredibly different from each other. These are usually worn during important celebrations, when hundreds of Sardinian women and men gather and parade in their folk costumes. Johara is from a small Sardinian town called Ottana. I met her 10 days ago, during the Feast of the Redeemer in Nuoro, a few kilometres from her home. I continue my journey in Italy and these days I’m in Milan with The Atlas of Beauty. #TheAtlasOfBeauty #Italy #Sardinia #Tradition #AroundTheWorld
