Although the fantasy genre has been on an uprise in the last few decades, and surreal scenes and ethereal looks are now more popular than ever, it seems like women of color are more often than not left out from this genre.
The reason for this remains unknown, but Twitter user @btsanima decided to reclaim all the glory of black women in fantastical set-ups, so she started off a powerful Twitter thread in which she invited people to share photos of black women in fantasy photography.
“Black women in fantasy photography thread bc even though our presence is small, I will not be deterred.” – reads her caption.
Thankfully, her post gained a lot of attention and immediately took off, so hundreds of people shared their jaw-dropping photos of fantastical set-up black beauty.
