I'm really intrigued by the simplicity of this project. I'd love a little description of what you're thinking about so I can get into it on another level.
-Lindsay, most black people refer to the area of hair on the back of the neck as the "kitchen." If a woman has straight hair there she has a clean kitchen, if the hair course or nappy she has a "dirty" kitchen. This work is just a look at the wide range of "kitchens." it was an attempt to remove all the other politics of the female body to focus strictly on the hair, and it's affects on femininity, sexuality, beauty and race.
This is deep Amber! Especially the way each woman protects or reveals her kitchen; looking at the natural vs. processed. Thanks for your vision!
This is brilliant!
