This is a beautiful work by photographer Vinicius Costa celebratin an artsy nude pictorial with two powerful models – right now are so solicited – Sam Gonçalves is an Afro-Brazilian model with vitiligo who partnered with Haitian model Jean Woolmay Denson for a photo series called “Pure Black”.
The splendid photography is by talented Vinicius Costa, the series is meant to push back against the ways we limit our conception of what Blackness can look like.
“We just want to show the world that Black is Black, no matter what,” says Gonçalves. “We all suffer. We are Black.” Incredible!
This work was published at afropunk.com a few months back, we find the rest of the pictures at tumblr.com
The important thing about this subject is union, love and art.
