Favour Jonathan changes her hair so often, it’s become the subject of her self produced photo series.
Refinery29 spoke to the 21-year-old, Central Saint Martins fine art student and multidisciplinary artist about what inspired her to begin snapping simple selfies of her multitude of hairstyles. The website reports:
Each photo, taken over the last five months, displays Favour wearing a different hairstyle (all self-styled) and channelling personas from Janet Jackson circa 1993 to a traditional woman of Favour’s homeland in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. She titled the project ‘A Statement of Pride’.
“My hair is mine. I can do whatever I want with it, no one else is in control. It’s my power, my strength and my crown. I can wear it anywhere and in any way I want to”, says Favour.
“My artwork is about learning and sharing. A community and a sense of being. When you have, you give, and when you learn, you teach,”
Yet another cool way to honor the wonders of black hair!
