50 SHADES DARKER
Women of Color Reclaiming the Beauty of Darkness
The latest design by Carlton Mackey is a continuation of the concept and design 50 SHADES OF BLACK which was originally posted on Tumblr in May 2012. After over 1000 reblogs, much welcome engagement, and critical input/feedback surrounding the original design, www.50shadesofblack.com was developed as a platform for discussion with the objectives of celebrating beauty, critically examining issues surrounding race/skin tone and fostering a healthy formation of black identity. All feedback, input, and inquiries are welcome. Please visit http://www.50shadesofblack.com to engage.
My goal is to offer credit to EVERY model and EVERY photographer used in the creation of this design. I want to create a directory on 50shadesofblack.com for this piece that links back to all of the photographers and models. Please email me submissions[at]50shadesofblack[dot]com or leave a reply if you are one such model, photographer, or have any info. If you wish to be removed from this design, let me know as well.
