Josef Adamu's 'The Hair Appointment' Celebrates The Art Of Hair Braiding
Nigerian-Canadian visual storyteller, Josef Adamu recently unveiled a new photo series, The Hair Appointment, which celebrates the art of hair braiding. The stunning series was released on his creative platform, Sunday School.
All of Adamu's work is very meticulous and well thought-out. You can see this, not only in the curatorial quality of his series, but also in the way he thoughtfully explains each project — which he's done in this detailed Medium piece.
Explaining his intention behind the series, Adamu said:
"The Hair Appointment was a visual series curated to demonstrate the beauty of hairstyling as a process, a lifestyle, and an overall experience. "
The strikingly colourful series focuses on women and their hairstyles, with pictures taken of the process of black hair being braided, beautiful and intricate hairstyles, schoolgirls proudly rocking their braided hair and more.
