New Photography by Mikael Owunna celebrates the beauty of the black body
‘Every Black Person Deserves To See Themselves This Way’
In his series called Infinite Essence, photographer Mikael Owunna creates works with the intention of redirecting imagery of black people. He works to create an alternative to the negative imagery we are accustomed to seeing in the news. He paints his models with glow in the dark paint to create images in which the black body appears celestial and infinite.
