I love love love Janelle Monae. I love her obvious use of black and white. I love her boy meets girl looks. And these images of Janelle as interpreted by photographer extraordinare, Kwaku Alston for Essence Magazine’s May issue, touches on the eclectic feminine side of the soul-funk artist.
There is only one word to describe these images – STUNNING. The photographer captures Janelle in a totally different way.
Kwaku shared these images on his blog where he gives a detailed account of the process followed in the photo shoot for Essence magazine and with Janelle. This would interest any fashion photographer that has interest in capturing a model in open space.
Enjoy the pictures.
