Photographer Spotlight: Mihaela Noroc

International Travel, Photographers

Nikon is being criticized for its selection of professional photographers promoting their new D850 DSLR in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. The problem? If you take a look at the photographers in the lineup, you’ll see 32 men and zero women. With this in mind, I thought I’d spend this week sharing links to some of my favorite female photographers.

Photographer Mihaela Noroc travels and captures the natural beauty around the world by showing the diversity of the planet through portraits of women. This project, entitled The Atlas of Beauty, started in 2013 and is just now coming out in book form. According to Noroc, “Many people from all around the world face discrimination just because they have a certain color, religion, ethnicity or because they are women. I think beauty is diversity and it can teach us to be more tolerant.” I have pre-ordered my copy of the book and look forward to seeing each photo being added to this continuing project.

Shoreditch B&W (Part 4)

Europe, International Travel, Photography

When I was last in London (summer 2015), I explored the graffiti and street art found all around Shoreditch. Originally I processed those photos I thought worked best in color; now I’m re-exploring the photos and processing some in black & white.
