Like I’ve mentioned in my previous post, this specific post is mainly about the BeautyInBlack exhibition by Dazhane Leah. For those who aren’t currently aware of who she may be, well let me just elaborate.
Dazhane Leah is a fashion blogger and photographer that is taking over all social media networks with her impeccable style and eye for detail. She is now recognised as the individual whose photography was featured on numerous media publications such as Essence Magazine, BBC, Elle Brazil, BlackBeauty et al. The photographs that permitted us all to mainly understand just how talented she is was the images that celebrated natural hair. Dazhane took advantage of the double exposure technique as she inserted flowers in afros, creating a breathtaking photo series that was considered as “the best spring natural hairstyles ever” by Essence. So when I found out she was having her first exhibition, it was only right to attend and witness the magic for myself.
Now, not only did the exhibition feature Dazhane leah but also By Afrique, Sarah Owusu, Erin, Biher Tewelde, Adaeze, Efe, Sirious Film and Timothy Gaudencio. A talented bunch right?
The entertainers of the night
Unfortunately, I was late to the exhibition so was kind of unable to witness all of the performers of night. I did however get the opportunity to witness Nego True do his thing!
It was my first time seeing him live and I just want to say this man is amazing! For those who aren’t aware of him, he does spoken word and is truly very inspirational. The work of Nego True permits you to reflect on your actions and life, speaking on issues that we face today both individually and as a community. You see how his name is Nego True? Well he speaks the truth alright!
Definitely one of my favourites of the night. I recommend watching his videos on Youtube if you haven’t already and just wait to be amazed.
Now this man here is a very unique performer! When Dazhane first introduced Edsun, he walked past the crowd of people to the middle of the floor with no shoes on and looked like he was already in action. At first I thought he was going to be doing some sort of contemporary dance but nooooo, he started singing and oh yes he can! Edsun is definitely different from all the other artists that I have recently seen. He has a different sound and basically gives you a show. Like a true performer that he is, Edsun never broke out of character and interacted with the audience when necessary. I’m telling you now keep an eye on this individual, he is definitely on the rise!
Overall, I enjoyed myself and would attend another event Dazhane throws!
