PHOTOGRAPHER: GIOVANNI GASTEL
This image contains some of Gastel’s dearest themes: references to theatre and comedy, and women heroines, caught in the moment of gathering inner strength. Fiercely looking at the camera, a black woman is sitting straight and proud of what she feels, of who she is or represents. While most likely naked, she is wearing luxurious jewelry around her neck and a fancy hairdo that strongly expresses her identity, all of this ensemble as an expression of her liberated womanhood.
