These photos are part of a larger project (I hope) that deals with Greek gods and goddesses and incorporates black bodies into their stories. The first one (the one featured) is the goddess Hera, who was known as the goddess of marriage and birth. She is also linked to Peacocks, which is why they are featured in the photos. I wanted to fuse together classical and contemporary photography with this project, and I hope the three photos can illustrate some of that.
