Victoria Ansah (Female) is co-founder, co-creative director, costume designer, and photographer for an L.A. based Pro-Black photo and film series called BLACK EXCELLENCE. The photo series is dedicated to the African Diaspora throughout the years in hopes to spark an interest in individuals to venture into the mysteries, truth and significance of Black history and lineage. These set of photos are titled “Afri” to describe inhabitants south of the Mediterranean. With an infusion of various African cultures, this collection is an ode to the Motherland and its diaspora of children symbolizing our ancestors prior to the “Age of Imperialism” before being touched by the catastrophic phenomenon known as the Atlantic Slave Trade therefore introducing a global ideology rooted in primitive greed. This majestic piece exudes Black love, life, togetherness and the overall essence of Black beauty.
