A journey behind the lens with Poncho. Studio photography has always been one of my first loves since my college years at MICA. Comprised of a portfolio of creative women of color, who are NOT professional models, or have even been considered as models, and in most cases would rather not be in front of the camera. The series is celebration of black beauty, which challenges the notion of standards of beauty in America. All of the subjects selected are all artists and craftswomen.
