Photo is part of my series, The Rewrite, an installation meant to focus on the lack of representation of black women in history. It’s meant to focus on gender, identity, and race. Elevating the ideas around black femininity and identity while defying typical stereotypes and biases. An individuality of each woman is revealed that is often denied. It is believed by many in society today that there is a certain persona or expectation that is suppose to come with being a black woman. People begin to see a black woman only for the color of their skin rather than the traits that make them an individual. This project focuses on the repeated history of how black women are treated and is set up in a way to make the community more visible. The portraits give it this old timeless feel, bringing it back to the roots of where it all started, the South.
