This is my latest on the series I'm currently working featuring people of the African diaspora, with emphasis on black women. During these increasingly tumultuous times, I find solace on celebrating the multi-dimensional aspects of black womanhood, which has been the backbone of so many social justice movements. Our often celebrated resilience comes at a high price that frequently leaves us feeling depleted, forsaken and overlooked. With this yet untitled series, I endeavor to present images of black women that are soothing and energizing reminder of the importance of self-care, self-love, and celebration of our womanhood. The above image is the most recent image of this series. You can see other portraits that I've done on my online portfolio or Instagram.
I'm currently looking for models who may be interested in participating. No experience is needed and I look want to celebrate a diverse representation of black women. Compensation will be in the form of free head shots and a free print of the final work.
If you or someone who know lives in the New York City area and would be interested in participating, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
