"This new photo series that illuminates the beauty of Black women is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Using vibrant body and face paint, the stunning “Moshoodat” series illuminates the beauty of Black women and empowers everyone who sees it.
Creator Moshoodat Sanni told BET.com that she created this project because she wanted Black women to be able to see themselves in an amazing light, a light they deserve to be in.
“Historically we haven’t been placed on these pedestals [that Kim Kardashian has] and we need images to appreciate ourselves not just on Instagram but in art and in fashion,” the 24-year-old said.
So to do just that, Sanni teamed up with Island Boy photographer and friend Joey Rosado, which started with Sanni using herself a guinea pig."
