My vintage series is an exploration into colorism and Eurocentrism as seen through vintage beauty advertisements and images of celebrity sex symbols from the 1940's-1980's. I find it interesting that throughout history hair and complexion are deemed consistent signifiers of a woman’s beauty and value. I observed through viewing many images interesting connections and dualities between Black and White women of the same era such as Black women bleaching their skin while White women are tanning theirs?
