My inspiration comes from my family and friends. The featured portrait of Sydné and Keverine is inspired by Jamaican dancehall culture through use of bold clothing and hairstyles created by the women in this image. It’s very important for me to create with black women and to photograph black women in an authentic light.
In capturing this narrative, it is key that all people involved in creating this image represent the culture.
