Tomorrow
“Tomorrow” is part of a photo series I am working on about the Afro-European identity. Within this project I explore how traditional customs like hair care, storytelling, tattooing and textile design etc. find a way to exist in our current generation whose lives are so heavily influenced by both the internet and technical devices.
