Reclaim + Redefine Part 3: Acknowledge Black Beauty.

  • "Acknowledge Black Beauty"
    Mainstream media habitually rejects and ignores, and remodels black features to fit the European beauty standard. As a result it is difficult for black people to find positive representation of people that look like them / share their features in the media. Through this project I wanted to combat that by creating a visual representation of what this experience feels like. To do so I took images of black people, which would be seen as positive representations, and placed transparent prints of them on mirrors. Doing so forces people to have to look around this other person to find the visual of themselves in the mirror.
