But that's just because people are ignorant about their own race. We come in all shades with various textures of hair. How do people not know this? #Melanin

shotbyfemo I normally do not share these kinds of images from my body of work on this page because first, I'm Nigerian (and you have a lot of cultural bottlenecks to navigate by way of explanation), then I'm technically a Pastor (and you have to attend to the brethren who are concerned for your 'spiritual & marital standing') and then the world is full of hypocrites who haven't seen themselves in their birthday suits before let alone another person (at least not when we're paying attention to them). However, I admire the courage of Clients and Muses in the past that have been bold to bare their soul before my cameras lens, to navigate the murky waters of silent awkwardness and to be patiently helpless while I paint with light and camera glued to my eye images that speak of vulnerable simplicity.
Thank you. The world needs more fearless and sincere souls who create art with light and bodies.

Now, for the opposites... don't ask me stupid questions. There are no smart answers to provide but rather stupid ones. 😀 #boudoir #artnude
