Interconnected is a visual exploration and celebration of indigenous and modern traditions of beauty across cultures. Rooted in the historical context of self preservation and humans relationship to the earth.  

Our first photo shoot of the series celebrated South Asian and Persian braiding practices. We would like to do another six photo shoots highlighting varied global cultures.  

As part of this visual exploration, we plan to photograph people of all genders and varied racial backgrounds, tying in traditional hair braiding from their ethnic backgrounds. 

In culmination of the series we would like to photograph all of our models  (or as many as we can) together. Amplifying how interconnected we are to one another, our varied cultural backgrounds and to the earth.
