This photo series is dedicated to highlighting women of color as the main characters of my themes. Oftentimes, the beauty we see in front of the lens do not truly reflect the diversity we see in the real world. This project is meant to introduce and normalize new meanings of what it means to be captured on camera as a woman. And how do you normalize beauty of women of color? You bring in new situations, new themes.
Each theme varies – some tell a story or while others provoke you to think critically. The rest are left for you to simply appreciate visually. Many thanks to my female friends of color. #wocbeauty
