The pinup series is an ongoing tribute to classic cheesecake photography and art of the 1950’s, and to Black women & femmes, who continue to be underrepresented/under-recognized in current-day pin-up subculture. Each edition is cheeky, coquettish, sexy, naughty, and provide me a fun opportunity to combine my love for photography and graphic design.
