New York based photographer, Nakeya B’s work is noted for its relatability and ability to flip the gaze on to the viewer, forcing them to see themselves in her photographed subjects. This characteristic is replicated in her photo series on ‘Good Hair’, an exploration of the obsession and consumption of “natural feeling, lighter, softer” Kanekalon hair, within the black community.
