Imaging the nude African woman is a series I have been photographing for several years in an attempt to gain an understanding on beauty from a renewed perspective. Some Africans have utilised skin-lightening product to beautify themselves. The notion of beauty thus has a relationship with skin color/tonality. Beauty in modern day society has a direct relation to complexion.
I photographed a series of women including African albino women to better gaining an understanding on how I perceive beauty away from conventional forms. I am intrigued by what beauty means to people of colour. I chose to do a project on nudes with reference to beauty, as it allowed me to deeper understand what beauty means after stripping her of the makeup and accessories to better gain an understanding of the bear African skin.
