One of the things I love most about working almost exclusively with Black women photographers is that they always see US. No matter where they go, they *see* us. Elmeka Henderson recently went to South Africa. I didn’t ask her to take any photos for #PrettyPeriod (though I should have!) and still….she sends me this beauty, who she convinced to participate in an impromptu photo shoot. If Meka’s Uber hadn’t showed up, they would have had a full on photo shoot because CLEARLY, this sista STAYS ready!
