Photography student In UK Creates Beautiful Artwork Through Afros | Naturally News

‘Afro Blomin’ by Dazhane Leah

They say ‘Art Imitates Life’ but UK based photography student, Dazhane Leah, infuses art into life. Her unique and stunning artwork is her way of sharing what beauty natural hair possess, and brings to the woman wearing it. 

 What Does the Afro Mean in 2014?

“I’ve read, seen for myself and been told by family and friends about the negative experiences they’ve had when wearing their natural hair,” Leah says to Mashable. “An afro is a statement and the hairstyle itself represents and holds so much history and passion and represents so much. As a whole, natural hair, especially when worn in an afro or dreadlocks has been and still is looked down upon.”

By placing flower in Afros, she’s created a new perception into the iconic style. She calls this concept, “Afro Blomin” and wanted to find out what Black Power meant through her social media friends and followers.

“The point of the project wasn’t to discriminate against other races but to to be unapologetic and celebrate black lives through everything that makes us who we are,” says Leah. She’s received a lot of attention and most are in just sheer amazement at the beauty taken onto a new level.

Natural Hair and Advertising…Too Much For Some?

Leah goes on to say, “Society tells us that our natural, God-given kinks and curls is not ‘good hair,'” she says. “Natural hair, no matter what way a person decides to wear it should equally fit societies standards of ‘Good hair’.”
