Afro-Dominican photographer Suhaly Bautista-Carolina, aka The Earth Warrior is creating a book of 100 portraits of Afro-Latinas in New York City.
Each portrait included in the final series will be paired with a brief write-up that delves into that woman’s black identity, Afrocentric traditions and hopes for future generations of Afro-Latinas.
The open call runs through March 31. If you are interested you should send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- 1-3 photos of yourself
- Neighborhood & Borough (i.e. Inwood, Manhattan,)
- 3-5 sentences on how you identify
To find out more about the artist and the series go to the UptownCollective.com.
So excited about this project!! I have personally known Suhaly for many years, as a friend and as my Hermana of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Senoritas Latinas Unidas, Inc. She is tremendous talented and powerful. Very proud!
That’s good news. A picture is worth a thousand words.
