Mfon: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora is an exclusive and commemorative book launching a bi-annual journal committed to establishing and representing a collective voice of women photographers of African descent. The inaugural issue of Mfon will feature two of my images, along with the work of 100 women photographers across the Diaspora. This iconic issue will feature an introduction by Dr. Deborah Willis, MacArthur Fellow and Chair of the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.  It will include conversations and essays written by women scholars, journalists and artists. 

On June 15, 2017 The New York Times published an article about the project titled The World According to Black Women Photographers (Appendix 26).

The two images of mine that will be featured in the commemorative issue are:
