About the Book
“#000”, or BLACK, is a collection of photos curated to express the cultural appreciation of the women owning their true self through their hair. As African-Americans, we are conditioned to believe certain features we possess are negative, i.e. our hair. When it is this feature, in addition to our melanin-rich skin, that makes us who we are. Each woman presented in this series opened up about their hair journey exuding love and passion through each loop and coiled-strand as they worked toward a healthy relationship and understanding of their hair. Throughout the project, 'versatility' is presented from many of the women and reflects my vision as to bring inspiration to those who are figuring out their path. No one's hair or journey is the same, but the appreciation for it all should be.
