Plaits, Princesses + Pink Moisturiser

see it at the Migration Museum

An award winning photography exhibition exploring Black womxn, femmes, non binary people and hair featuring Dawn Butler MP, author Otegha Uwagba and drag queen Son of a Tutu. Each person in these series of photos was asked to choose an object that reminded them of a memory to do with their hair, from tights, sports medals to wigs. They told their story (read them here) and had their portrait taken in a special location in Waltham Forest.
