The photo above is the work of German photographer Klaus Lenzen. The picture shows a staircase at the Hyatt Hotel in Dusseldorf leading up to a window facing the blue sky. In addition to highlighting the design, placing the stairs and the window in dark shadows has added a piece of surrealism to the photo. Image elements seem to float in space.
This photo is the work of Zimbabwean photographer Tamari Kodi. The image is titled African Victorian and depicts a young black woman in a black Victorian dress with a traditional Shona dish on her head.
The photograph examines the stereotypical contextualization of the black female body and offers an alternative visual language to represent a multidimensional African identity.
The photographer of this picture is Juan Lopez Ruiz from Spain. The name of this work is Electric Storm on Lavender, which was taken in the province of Guadalajara, Spain.
