Spring is here and to celebrate our natural beauty photographer Dazhane Leah decided to take it a step further and start Afro Bloomin‘ (The Black Power Project part 1), a series of photos that embrace all types of natural curls.
“Black power as a concept was always something I wanted toll explore with photography,” says Leah. “I decided to use my social media following to get people involved—I asked for muses and asked people what black power meant to them. From everyone’s interpretation of the phrase I was able to translate their words into my art and that’s how I came up with the first segment, Afro Bloomin. The purpose was to create a piece that represented the answers from peoples opinions and break down the negative stereotypes that are often associated with natural hair.”
