Celebrate Yourself – Through the Lens

A free Photo Shooting for Black, Indigenous and PoC Queers.

Show yourself, accept yourself, celebrate and love yourself is the motto of this empowerment photo shooting event for BIPOC Queers. Put your favourite looks on and come to a day of celebrating yourself through the lens.

The goal is to sensitize our community to take a less critical look at their own appearance. To see, show, celebrate and love each other in the simplest way possible, through our own portraits!
A way of rejecting the cult of beauty and appearance promoted by the media in which our communities are not or very little represented.

3 different Format:
Analog (film) Black & White
Digital Color or Black & White
Polaroid Color or Black & White

The Pictures are only for your own use however it pleases you and will not be published or used by any third party. You will be given an appointment of around 1 hour for yourself where no other participant will be present unless you bring someone along. Our aim is that all the participants feel comfortable, at ease, have a good time and see themselves as beautiful as they are despite all the differences.

You can also get the chance to develop your pictures together with the photographer in a Lab.

About the Photographer: #BIGMOTHA

Bigmotha is my alter ego, a Berlin based self-educated photographer from France. I am that indomitable and creative spirit who traveled throughout Africa, USA, Asia and Europe to meet images that tell their own stories. After a Bachelor of Art in Politic Sciences, I pursued my studies with a Master degree in Management. But that was not enough, I had the strong will to learn the history of Art and became more and more interested in its variety.

My appeal for Art led me to diverse artistic projects including the Paris Photo fair trade and a Pop up event at the MoMA in New-York. I am part of a really inspiring artsy family, our art flourish through different kind of mediums; photography is my way of expression.
