Model & Painting

During a fashion week I photograph a fashion model in a colonial like period dress against an African-American painter Kara walker painting in the Wadsworth Museum.
† Kara Walker explores race, gender, sexuality, violence and identity in her work.
She along with Kara's work made a piercing transcending statement from a turbulent pass to a questionable present.
