"...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 on us to create the type of imagery that speaks to who we're are (I'm tired of the angry black girl stereotype) and as a black woman and photographer I feel that it is my responsibility to celebrate the beautiful black girls that are my family, friends, strangers on the bus, etc"
That's the truth right there. Huge congratulations to @colendelu
