BLACK DIASPORA

With its bold colors and patterns, Diaspora Series (2018, ongoing) is a celebration of Black life. It aims at challenging the notions of Blackness that objectify and dehumanize by equating it with negativity. Portraying individuals from the Diaspora and the continent by highlighting selfperception and beauty, it invites for a reflection on Blackness and asks for an understanding of its diversity and complexity.
