For this story photographer Aleksandra Adamczyk was inspired by multiculturalism. In order for societies that are rather homogenous to move towards diversity, all people have to be made to feel comfortable and a part of the community. The hairstyles depicted vary from sculptural threaded hair as done by the Yoruba people of Nigeria, to Ghana braids that gradually increase in volume, to half-braided half-down hairstyle typical for the Tigray people of northern Ethiopia. The interweaving of traditional hairstyles within the contemporary styling stands for the belief that individuals can practice their cultural elements and still be assimilated members of a diverse and accepting society. This story aims to empower anyone whose status has been questioned because they ‘appeared foreign’. Yes, I belong here. Yes, I got my papers.
