bLAck VENus

bLAck VENus imagines the birth of forms of representation that celebrate the black female form and centre sensuality, intimacy and community. In collaboration with Nami Swim, a sustainable black owned label, this series reconsiders who, what and which bodies can be held up against the standards of “high fashion”. 

The traditional igbale brooms and silky fabrics against the luminescence of the blue pool speak to the tensions inherent within this drive to an alternative future. The final image asks us to draw back and consider the power structures lying behind the scenes.
