Shot by lifestyle and editorial photographer Ciaran Christopher in collaboration with creative director and stylist Ramario Chevoy, the photo series down below is part of an ongoing project that focuses on Caribbean creatives who are under and misrepresented within their industries. “I want people to know that we are here and our voices and beauty should be heard and seen and I do imagine hopefully there is more of us out there but we need the representation we deserve,” Chevoy tells AFROPUNK.
