My series speaks about the #blackgirlmagic movement. -
For my series, I decided to focus on the emotions of love, pride, confidence, serenity and strength. I wanted to capture the variety of emotions related to the #blackgirlmagic movement; the emotions and sentiments that I feel are the heart and pillar of the movement. The movement is about our relationship with our bodies; it’s about seeing the beauty we possess as individuals (within), as well as seeing and celebrating the beauty of other black girls. I decided to introduce circular graphics into my portraits because they remind me of the halos that you find around the heads of saints and deities, they’re attached to this idea of veneration. And that’s what I wanted to do with this series, celebrate black women; celebrate our strength, softness, beauty, bodies, sensuality and colour. The onus is upon us to create the type of imagery that speaks to who we are (I’m tired of the angry black girl stereotype) and as a black woman and photographer I feel it is my responsibility to celebrate the beautiful black girls that are my family, friends, strangers on the bus, etc.
