As for this post, I'm sharing the photos of my dear friend Simone who was kind enough to give me her time so I can dress her up for my project I mentioned earlier. I was really trying to go for a merging image of cultures that have heavily influence my life but without making one appear more or less significant in comparison to the other. Idk how well of a job I did with that but hopefully it seems to be split 50/50.
Simone actually had a lot of elegance in these shots to my surprise and I say that only because we were giggling so much throughout the shoot. Otherwise she's a classy lady lol! She embodied the soul of the woman who I see within, not just myself, but in a lot of my friends and followers who are also of African descent but are influenced by Asian culture in some way. They know who they are ❤ Also this should not be taken as me trying to mock another culture for fun but to express my deep admiration for its beauty. So please don't take offense to this as I would never try to demean or disrespect anybody's culture.
