29 year old Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc‘s beautiful project, The Atlas of Beauty, celebrates the beauty of diversity, travelling to 37 countries to capture just that in her stunning images. She says, “Now I can say that beauty is everywhere, and it’s not a matter of cosmetics, money, race or social status, but more about being yourself,” she wrote in a description of the series sent to The Huffington Post. “Global directions make us look and behave the same, but we are all beautiful because we are different.

A fascinating interview by Jonathan Field of The Good Life Project and Ed Catmull, founder of Pixar Studios. In college, Catmull switched from animation to physics, a fabulous leap. Catmull talks about how creativity has to be cultivated, and about the importance of art in society, saying, “Art teaches you how to see. The thing you’re actually learning to do is to see. There’s this amazing misconception that art is about learning to draw and therefore it’s discounted and when funding is tight, as it is, then art programs are usually the first thing to go. Because of this incredible misconception that it’s about learning to draw and not about learning to see….but if you turn it around and say, ‘oh, learning to observe is an important skill to develop, both in art and in science, and in medicine and in psychology and in management, then it gives you a different perspective”. He goes on to say, “Our brain models the world and we think it’s the reality. And if you can step back and the observation is the world is actually telling you some thing and I’m kind of distorting it on the way in. But if I learn not to distort OR recognize that if I’m distorting it, I can be open to listen to other people’s viewpoints because they’re seeing things that are different than I see and the things that they seeing aren’t competing with what I ‘m doing, it can be additive to it.”. Fortune Magazine aptly describes Catmull as ‘Pixar’s philosopher/king'; read their interview with him here and check out Catmull’s 2014 book, ‘Creativity, Inc’ , with Fortune review here
