As much as the use of beauty, sensuality and movement inform the photograph of the female nude, my work with these images is also an effort to undo the years of historical colonial bigotry, stereotyping and negative characterization of black females, which has been used to exploit, demean and mis-represent our humanity.
As Joan Morgan says in the foreword to the published book of these images, “Black Bodies,” “In this funny house of images convoluting Black female identity, Jules Allen has given a welcome glimpse of our true selves, and America, a much needed layer to her definition of beauty.”
