Women of Flatbush (2017)
"Women of Flatbush" explores hair as a marker of cultural identity by highlighting the beauty of form inherent in different hair types and styles, and their similarities among different cultures. Flatbush, Brooklyn, is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the United States, and the "Women of Flatbush" series features that diversity as well as our shared humanity.
Hair is one of the most iconic and contentious parts of a woman's face and this series investigates the power as well as the poetic nature of hair. The juxtaposition of these two facets allow for a deeper and more contemplative view of beauty, highlighting issues of gender, race, and representation in Western culture.
