FACING MYSELF AU NATUREL!







Demba Joob, a friend, a wonderful photographer, video director and hip hop soldier within the Senegalese comunity offered me the chance to see myself through his lenses, it was a wonderful and tough experience...tough you may wonder why?

Tough because he told me that he wanted me free of painting in my face, yes I had to come ' face naked" I thought to myself is he crazy I want enhanced pictures..

Wonderful experience because it allowed me to see where I am physically at this particular moment, with the things that I may like abt myself and those I may not..
I looked at the film and thought waw 30 hein yaye ...the body does change, the skin does change, this was just me...up to me to embrace myself or not..so I chose too ...difficult at times but I did I face : I,Je, Yo, Mou..
now it's up to me to feel and look even better the next time I'm offered a photo session..

Here's Demba's website:
