La Negra de Nadie
A photographic alter ego honoring the Yoruba deity Oshun. The title which roughly translates to “the black woman who belongs to no one”, is inspired by Enrique Grau’s painting La Mulata de Cartagenera. THe artist subverts the male gaze by offering an image that is both sensual but challenging to the viewer. The feminine is not only to be desired but to be honored.
