“Trust Black Women” is intentionally captured in a black and white photography technique to fortify the audiences encounter; an unapologetic display of black womanhood, unimaginably transforming hearts, minds and energy. Without the distraction of color, beholding a raw conduit to the soul of black folks. – Ash Love of Love.LocalArt
I was a featured model for the Trust Black Women Photos Exhibition! This was an amazing experience created by renowned photographer Ash Love of Love.LocalArt. On day of the photo shoot, I assisted with checking in, interviewing, and coaching the models during their photo session. The interview question the models were asked is “Why should you trust black women?”. Their responses were phenomenal!
During the photo shoot, healing and restoration took place. We laughed, cried, and celebrated. By the end of the day, twenty models total were photographed. I was tired but refreshed at the same time; the love I felt and experienced throughout the day was good for my soul. Below are my photos that were featured in exhibition. Also click Trust Black Women Soundtrack to listen to some of the responses on SoundCloud.
To trust Black Women, you must embrace their innate ability to create, nurture, and transform. Embrace black women’s divine parallel to establish covenant relationships. In trusting black women, one must understand the power of covenant and her position as a conduit of knowledge. So, when you empower a black woman you empower a community. – Tonya Cross
