Project info

It is about a "hairdresser road trip" from Ethiopia to Ghana, from Gambia to Cuba focussing on "Afro salons".

Afro hairdressers are very diverse and I have tried to illustrate it. I have focussed on the atmosphere and the color combinations which are so unique in Africa and Cuba.

I have tried to show the beauty which appears everywhere despite the poverty and sometimes tragic human conditions... I usually work on very sad and dramatic topics and I wanted to go for something light and beautiful.
