Inspired by Solanges hit song “Don’t Touch My Hair , this portrait project by photographer Hoyam Ben Taleb portrays the natural beauty of the Black woman. a strong but sensitive woman who isnt afraid to express her realness and is tune with herself .
Heres what Hoya thinks on the Project
“I think it’s time for us colored people to take back our right to speak and occupy the space, we’ve reached time where it is no longer acceptable that some western people tells us what we should do, be, think, and it goes by art and fashion too.I couldn’t think of anyone else but Mossane a model and currently finalist of Miss Swiss 2017, through the intensity of her expression soft and strong at the same time. I honestly didn’t have to do much besides watching her evolve during the shooting.”
