A Series Of Portraits-Pt 2; Hair
Series Tittle Song: Black Is The Colour Of My True Love’s Hair by Nina Simone
A series of portraits Pt2 is an extension of my portraiture series which now sets focus on hair. A few months ago I had decided that I want to shave off my hair. However it was difficult archiving the decision I made. I realised it is not just hair; It’s not only for public delight but it’s very personal. It is a part of me that I cannot deny. My hair is my pride, it is my crowning glory. My hair is a personification of me. It signifies my strength like the hard undefined curls, which coils into strands of dreadlocks.
My hair is not just an accessory; it’s a statement of how proud I am to be natural. It’s an extension of me, it’s an identity. It’s an appreciation of being a woman, it compliments my skin colour, and it is the energy receiving source. It serves as another part of my character; it gives an artistic side of me. It is me.
