Who am I? A photo study…

I am a real person, flesh and blood.  I’ve noticed a certain reluctance among some bloggers to share the reality of their existence as flesh and blood people, especially among women bloggers.  To hide one’s face and body in virtual space is a political strategy, and indeed, one that speaks to the erasure of the self as a means towards assimilation and acceptance among those who name themselves the hegemony.  I exist, period.  I am a woman of African descent, and as such, I am a part of the African Diaspora.  I am an Afrofuturist.

Two photo feeds between 2010 and 2012:
