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.

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.”
