Mystical is part of a series called A New Light. I worked with model and dancer, Alexis Turner. When brainstorming for our shoot, we discussed her personal experiences of being a woman of color in America, especially how she had been treated growing up in the world of ballet and how she is frequently asked to act and look on camera as a Black female model. The side of her that is soft, serene, graceful, and playful are rarely portrayed. So, we centered our inspiration for these images around expressing those sides of her and creating imagery to counter what often saturates the visual representation of women of color.
