“LIGHT is an ongoing series addressing the stigma i grew up with, that dark skin girls were “too dark” to wear bright colors. Using the genres: fashion and identity, I shoot on location and in studio to portray this idea and combat that negative thinking by combining vibrant patterns and colors on my darker skin models.“
