Work on paper
Photos of women from the African continent depicted from a book published by Taschen in 2003, titled Black Ladies. Presented under the guise of artistic photos black women are actually shown in soft porn positions. The photo’s show how colonizers still influence the countries that they colonized, and is deeply connected to the development of post-colonial theory. The postcolonial gaze theory allows formerly colonized societies to overcome the socially constructed barriers that often prohibit them from expressing their true cultural, social, economic, and political rights.
