Powerful Photos By Romanian Artist Capturing The Beauty of Motherhood Around The World

Romanian-born photographer Mihaela Noroc has been photographing women around the world for since 2013.

In 2017, she released a book called The Atlas of Beauty with 500 portraits of women from over 50 countries. While traveling and working on her book, Mihaela also documented and photographed motherhood, sharing the tales of unconditional compassion and love between a mother and a child through her heartwarming images. Mihaela received her first camera at 16 years and her first subjects were her mother and sister.

She abandoned photography after her teachers at university discouraged her from pursuing it professionally. But in 2013, she traveled to Ethiopia, and this trip inspired her to return to photography.

Writing on independent-photo.com, she says, “Real beauty has no bounds. One can find it anywhere, in a village or in a skyscraper, in a gesture, in an intense gaze or in some wrinkles: Real beauty is in our differences.”

Scroll down and take a look at what it’s like being a mother all across the world.

So far, the photographer has captured glimpses into the lives of 26 mothers around the world. Noroc says that the amount of context she can provide around each portrait changes each time.

“I sometimes feel that the photos of mothers with their children tell so much and a longer caption would only spoil the charm. But there’s always intimate chemistry between them. And there’s always so much beauty and kindness in these special moments.” Noroc shared on platforms.

Mihaela herself became a mother in August 2018 and this made her even more motivated to continue her project. She’s now traveling the world with her little daughter. In two years, little Natalia has traveled with her mother to 28 countries on 6 continents, meeting many amazing women.

However, just like everybody else, Mihaela too was affected by the outbreak of the worldwide pandemic.

“In January, we were in China when a mysterious virus started to make news in the country. Back home, in Europe, nobody cared about it, but being a few hundred kilometers away from the epicenter, seeing what was happening around us made me realize that our world would change a lot,” Noroc shared on her Instagram. “We’ve been fortunate enough to get back home safely, in Romania, and find a place with a courtyard during the lockdown. Although we can’t move, we can at least see the sky. I look at it and I’m wondering when we will be back there, on a plane, traveling to a new destination to meet new amazing women?”

As a mother herself, Mihaela hopes to learn from this crisis and create a more beautiful and equal world where her daughter Natalia can live peacefully.

“There are many more stories waiting to be discovered and now, as a mother, I feel an even stronger desire to bring my small contribution to making this world a better place for future generations.” She wrote on her Instagram.

20 Pictures of German Shepherds That Show You How Adorable and Loving They Are

I believe you all have heard of German Shepherds. They are the most steadfastly loyal companions, and consistently rank at the top of the most popular dog breeds, and it’s easy to see why. German shepherd dogs (GSD) are noble, diligent, loyal, and highly intelligent dogs. They are large in size and have very streamlined, athletic builds that make them both strong and agile.

Though they are excellent herding dogs, German shepherds are very well suited to work as service animals, such as guide dogs for the blind. They are excellent performing as working dogs, especially in police and military operations. They also make highly effective guard dogs. Of course, the German shepherd dog also makes a wonderful companion in the right home.

One of the most recognizable breeds today, German shepherds are celebrated for their impressive balance of power and grace. They surely mark a presence in your heart as well. To all of those who own a German shepherd, they will strongly agree to that fact.

Below we’ve made a list of their adorable pictures, and they will make you fall in love with this breed once more.
