August is women’s month in South Africa. I wanted to use this to assemble together a group of some of the most outspoken, bold and creative women* I know.
The setting : The Cape Colony, beautiful women of colour dressed in black and an afternoon full of conversation and sharing. I wanted to profile these unique women in a way that would unify them all but also focus on how much diversity there is within a group of strong women from different fields of work. It goes without saying, these images are striking and hold a silent power that cannot be articulated in words; shot by a woman and created for women.
Follow Mzansimoodboard on Instagram from Monday the 8th of August as these dynamic individuals are profiled daily until the end of the month.
This is but a small way of appreciating the strength of all of the women who do their all on a daily basis in order to exist in a world that deems us unworthy. We are more than worthy. Word! To The Women Of Colour.
