Beautiful and Black – See the work of the Bahian photographer that values black beauty

Black Women of Brazil


Note from BW of Brazil: Welcome to 2015! Hoped you’ve recovered from the party and you brought in the new year safely! After a great 2014, we at BW of Brazil are back to business as usual and our first post of 2015 is a great start! The photos presented in today’s post represent everything we discuss and what our objective is here: exposing the darker faces that Brazil’s ultra Eurocentric media prefers to hide, the beauty of Brazil’s black women and highlighting the fact that there is a whole people in Latin America’s largest, most populous country who deserve to represent the image of their country as much as those who classify themselves as white. Today’s photo exhibit follows past projects by other photographers who also chose to focus their attention on black women (see here, here, here and here). Hope you enjoy the photos…
