Typical weave/ salon posters




I photographed 5 girls in total. Using two
different 35mm cameras and two lenses 35mm
and 50mm. Shirley and Pauline were photographed
on different days in different locations
however the backgrounds didn’t quite work
with the images of the other girls. The green
tint on both sets of images do not work alongside
the blue tone of the other images. However
in the future as I continue the project it may
work better as the series grows and the tones
vary more.

I spent a lot of time thinking about the aesthetics of black hair and experimenting
with drawing and painting. I spent time visualising the
structures and shapes black hair forms. I visualised men and women and
did blind drawings which created interesting silhouettes and lines.
