Jungle | Vintage Styled Shoot
This semi-impromptu styled shoot was a continuation of the HER series that we’ve been working on for CreateHer Stock with the talented I’sha Gaines of I’sha Gaines Photography, who is also the founding editor of HoneyBeNatural Magazine. The HER Series is a project that exemplifies specifically women of color in their multitude of roles in society. It highlights the culture, character, style, and uniqueness that personifies “black girl magic.” We were blessed to work with a wonderful group of women that brought the vision to life for both part one and part two. We also had the wonderful clothes donated by Vintage Tex and Intuition.la.
I titled this particular series ‘Jungle’ because it illustrates the beauty in HER struggle.
The African-American woman is perplexing. Her beauty, her wisdom, and her confidence can be confusing to some. That makes her a threat. She’s now seen as competition. So, because of the insecurities of someone else…the wilderness is now HER reality.
But what they didn’t know about HER is…
She would own the Jungle they put her in.
