Natural Hair Styles on Display in Nation's Capital

June 4, 2014

Jason Miccolo Johnson exhibit celebrates ethnic looks.

Award-winning photographer Jason Miccolo Johnson will preview his national photographic exhibition focusing on the beauty of natural hairstyles during a special VIP preview from 7-9 pm on June 14 in the gallery of The Leica Store (977 F St. NW, Washington, DC). The project, titled Yours Naturally, celebrates the beauty of women of the African Diaspora and will change not only the way they see themselves, but how others perceive them, said event organizers.
 
The exhibition consists of large-scale portraits featuring a variety of creative hairstyles that bring out the natural beauty of its wearers. Yours Naturally documents women of all ages, sizes, professions and complexions wearing stunning natural hairstyles. The women were photographed in the studio and various everyday settings.
 
A national traveling exhibition is expected to launch this Fall and will tour Historical Black Colleges and Universities as well as museums and cultural centers throughout the US. 

“This will be a perfect vehicle for generating serious discussions around issues of healthy hair; self-esteem; fitness and nutrition; and what really defines beautiful hair,” said Johnson.  Complementing the touring exhibition will be a series of seminars and live demonstrations.
 
Yours Naturally will, for the first time in a national exhibition, pay homage to the growing natural hair movement that is quietly spreading across America.
