It's A Dangerous Place When There's No Space to Cry

These self-portraits are based on the idea of black women and their lack of space to actually feel, to cry, and to be vulnerable without the world dehumanizing or fetishizing black women. 

I believe these photos are what define me, seeing as they show my presence in spaces where I could not express my feelings because I felt unwanted. Rather, I actually find spaces where people are receptive to my feelings as a black woman and want to understand. These ideals are important not only for myself but also for my growth mentally and emotionally.
