The Coiffure Project: Natural Hair Photography by Glenford Nunez

If you follow Derby City Naturals on FB then you should have seen my fake Tumblr album. It is a collection of photos I have ran across on the internet that I feel embody the culture of natural hair.  One of my subbies shared a link to The Coiffure Project and I immediately fell in love.  My first thought was: wow a photographer who finally gets it!  I wanted to share every single photo I saw but decided just to share a few and give you guys a link to check out the entire album.  You will not be disappointed.

Glenford Nunez is the photographer and owner of TYP Photography Studio in Baltimore, Md and the creator of The Coiffure Project.  He started this project because he felt that woman with natural hair were notably absent from quality photo galleries of the fashion and art world (I agree).  Click this link to check out the complete gallery.  He also accepts submissions, so if you would like to be part of The Coiffure Project please email cd@typBaltimore.com with recent photos.

Au Naturale: Kinky In Two Ways

This post has been sitting in my drafts for awhile, I have been unsure how to actually proceed with it but I guess I will just tell it like it is.

I love artistic tasteful nudes.  You can check out wonderful shots by famed photogs like Saddi Khali who I politely stalk on fb.  He has a way of capturing some of the most tender human moments through his lens.  I vow to have a shoot with him one day.

And then one day I stumbled across this site Pangeas Garden.  I am not a member so I cannot tell you exactly what is contained within its private pages but it looks to be a risque mix of all things natural: hair, body, and minds.  From ther website: Pangaea’s Garden is the comprehensive online community for creatively, Afrocentric sensual image sets, character interviews, columns and model journals along with trends in music and culture.

Well from the free peek I received from their website it seems a tad racy, but done with class.  For those that feel that natural women are excluded from the highly sexualized photo shoots of Maxim, Sports Illustrated or even Victoria’s Secret this may be the place for you.
