The husband-and-wife team behind CreativeSoul brought out the natural beauty of young black ladies. They created Afro Art – a series of gorgeous portraits that focus on the ladies’ hair.
The couple thinks that it is very important for kids of colour to be able to see the positive images that look like them in the media, so their portraits feature black girls in elaborate costuming and hairstyles from the Baroque period.
The lack of diversity often forces kids to have low self-esteem, because it plays with the stereotypes that they are not ‘good enough’.
They hope that the girls around the world will be inspired to love their uniqueness and that the viewers will see the beauty and versatility of Afro hair.

Costumes inspired by other ‘universes’ are also included by Afro Art
