In spite all of the naysayers who criticize black women for embracing their natural hair and its versatility, visual artist Pierre Jean-Louis has used incredible works of art to remind the world how beautiful black women – and their multitude of hairstyles – really are.
With the help of a new app called Enlight, the artist has taken pictures of black women and embedded them with natural imagery like pine trees and starry galaxies to create stunning works of art.
About his project, Jean-Louis says “I started creating these beautiful pictures last year around September when I started following some amazing accounts on Instagram [which have] nothing but beautiful black queens rocking their natural hair. I was amazed to see how so many black women are finally letting go of their insecurities and accept themselves for who they are.”
The series is undoubtedly stunning and such a powerful demonstration of the everlasting beauty that resides within black women.
