For this series, we photographed portraits 25+ women of various backgrounds and attempted to capture the stories of their relationship with their hair, and how those stories are part of a wider story - one of diversity, culture, empowerment, etc. In this context, hair is only a told. It’s a lens through which these womxn tell their stories, which ultimately, are also the stories of humanity.
