It is a well-known fact that the bond between a mother and her children is the strongest and most important one in nature. Mothers play a key role in the lives of their offspring through the best and worst of times, doing anything to keep them safe, happy, and healthy.

Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc dropped everything and went travelling across the globe, taking pictures of diverse women surrounded by the very essence of their own culture. With the help of her images, she had not only captured the amazingly beautiful women, but also showcased and shared some of their incredibly inspiring stories on her platform. You can find her previous work by following these links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

Along the way, passing through well over 50 countries, Noroc has also managed to document and photograph motherhood, taking it upon herself to share the tales of unconditional compassion and love between a mother and a child.

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.
