by Mario Epanya

BEAUTIFUL is a celebration of black beauty captured through the lens of Paris-based Cameroon-born photographer, Mario Epanya.

For just over a decade, Epanya has been working to promote diversity in fashion and portraiture, highlighting the myriad shades and textures in black skin tone and hair as well as the variety of body shapes and sizes. His iconic images, shaping the modern face of African beauty, fashion and style have appeared in groundbreaking publications, among them New African Woman and Zen Magazine and in campaigns for the likes of L’Oreal Paris and Maybelline New York.

BEAUTIFUL presents a stunning collection of existing and never before seen portraits featuring everyday women and models of colour and it pays homage to the strong women who raised Epanya, his beloved grandmother, mother, sisters, aunts and friends - telling the visual story that black is indeed BEAUTIFUL.
