FACE FORWARD - Meet the Photographer Advocation for Black Beauty in the Fashion Industry: Glenford Nuñez

“You photograph what you see around and the things you care about,” Nuñez says. “My mom is a Black woman. My sister is a Black woman. These are the people I love, so I want them to be depicted in the best possible light.” He is on a mission to capture at least 100 aspiring Black models to affirm that our beauty — inside an out — is worthy of praise.

featured models: Ra’Chael Baker, Kennedy McDaniel, Sinmidele Badero,Tene’A Cummings, Ariana Gulford, Emoni Baraka, Tayquana Demery

TOGETHER WITH GUCCI WE’RE CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY OF DIVERSITY AND A KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLOUR FOR SPRING / SUMMER 2017

  • “The fashion industry has the ability to make the less visible, visible.” ~ Jourdana Phillips
  • “The inspiration for the story is the sentiment of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, “If we are going to push the conversation forward then we have to look beyond simply talking about models on the runway, and focus instead on individuality and faces that show humanity.”

I wanted to practice drawing more girls, so I chose one of @zamaron‘s character, Miya! I was immediately drawn by her cute design. I hope you like it!

(I just had to finish designing Jazz’s humanformer. His outfit isn’t the official uniform, I just wanted to put him into the ‘70s fashion real quick-

**Shades ver included!)


((ADDITIONAL NOTE: Jazz isn’t part of the ask!squad on this blog, but if an ask happens to mention him, he will show up in a few drawings. Remember, Jazz was mostly a temporary member of the Bee Team. This also goes for Optimus, Ratchet, and Bulkhead))
